Ode to those & Walter Becker

Ode to those

I carry

eyes of the dead

in my heart

place pictures in rooms

painted a shade of

gray.

Music created them

death removed them

before their time.

Rainbows disappeared

on fateful days

tomorrow did not make the show

sold out.

They made flames dance

hearts melt

many a child conceived

with them in background

creating a beat.

Between licks on strings

between lyrics

filled with soul

they left a mark

tattooed

on hearts, You Tube.

I carry tunes from long ago

a calendar without numbers

ponder

who’s next?
