who give you that name?

i laugh when i hear it.

it’s some kind of crazy shit.

adonis, me and polly

could hardly drag you in the house,

after the show

to sleep it off on the couch.

adonis, your drum case

is in the back of my truck.

shook my head at your drunk face

but i kissed it for luck.


who give you that name?

tell me when you wake up,

and i’ll drive you home again.

    Kissing the drunks was never particularly lucky for me–just sayin’. I am laffin a bit at the whole scene here though–post-gig dramatic stress disorder?

  2. Mama Zen says:

    I know that guy!

  3. Loved this piece. Fresh and honest.

    haha hedge..iamy have been carried in a time or two….waaaaaay back in the day…but i will say nothing of kisses…

    Took me there. Felt I was watching the truck stop at a loft and an unkempt beautiful man being helped to something near sobriety. Sometimes they have the look of young children or puppies. You captured the moment well.

  6. This piece has such great music to it, real bluesey and fresh. Thank you for sharing it!

  7. So are drummers like chimney sweeps then? Sure as hell would be easier to find.

  8. Tino says:

    All us old hippies are the spitting image of Adonis. At least thats my excuse and I am sticking to it.

    Jovial little piece that made me laugh, so thanks for that.

  9. you captured that wonderfully. whimsical, loving, compassionate. a snapshot of the mundane calling into being a way to be.

  10. Window lad says:

    ..interesting read.. the latter part made me smile.. well done!

    Good day.
