A Short and Illustrated Thought #24

Posted in Bing Crosby, David Bowie, Photography, The Little Drummer Boy, The Meyerhoff on July 2, 2012 by smpiv

Why?

Why did I cry?

 

Did the Meyerhoff know?

Did my rose water neighbor know?

 

“The Little Drummer Boy”—

he knew.

Not the Bing and David version (brilliant)

 

My youth, it went,

washed away

with salty tears.

 

My forty days were up.

Now, just one more voice

in the wilderness.

 

I cried.
