Who By Rote

I'm here because you're here and when you go I'm going too

As neutral as snow covering up violence your mind was
smashing its gear like The Who by rote at good ol Monterey
where some people cheered and some looked away
and your best words the most economical and clear to
the ear are nullified and kept
by mum protectors of a suicide note but the best part of cold
is faraway is close and the distant bark of a lone snow shovel
digging out after the storm is a rhythmic whisper

I'm here because you're here and when you go I'm going too



Song Bio

The poem that stayed so. Getting the sound of the snow shovel was good: Clarkie got the chest-scrubber (see cajun/creole/zydeco) and showed me how to use it: scraping it, in time, on the pavement in front of the studio early evening, unseasonably warm, Dale holding the mic. I'm here because you're here and when you go, I'm going too.. I'm here because you're here and when you go I'm going too - As neutral as snow covering up violence your mind was smashing its gear like The Who by rote at good ol Monterey where some people cheered and some looked awa and your best words the most economical and clear to the ear are nullified and kept by mum protectors of a suicide note but the best part of cold is faraway is close and the distant bark of a lone snow shovel digging out after the storm is a rhythmic whispe I'm here because you're here and when you go I'm going too
