last year’s birthday poem for elliot


a genuine human bean sneaker 

touch and go 

sugar tooth sweet lips 

claw hammer hand job on the banjo 

and a fiddler, too! 

to clarify: 

too many qualities  

to explain by word alone 

so next time i see y'all 

i'll have my teeth in for a scream 

a gutsy goose yell to the high heavens 

a gratitude attitude for a musical friend 

from another planet 

the one i woke up on years ago 

as if it was all a dream
