Laaaaaaa la la la la la
(after Crocodile Rock, by Elton John)
It’s shocking to suddenly miss your blue jeans,
your gold Chevy and a place of your own; one day
you’re still wearing the shoes and the glasses,
still playing shows, but you can’t hit the notes.

I love your work. I wish you lived in Arkansas – I’d want to be in a writer’s group with you!
Aww, thanks! That would be fun. Are you doing NaPoWriMo, too? If so, I’ll make it a point to come visit.
Yep, chugging along with my poem a day.
