SHEPARD’S CHURCH We wandered down the avenues of leaning stone where whispered prayers floated up to the heavens. Where vanished souls of yesterday stood in heavy silence.

KNEES We need our knees Like honey needs bees They bend us like willow Then ache like billio Knees need feet To travel the streets From the mill to the gristle They come when I whistle Don’t take your knees for granted They’ll get you moving When you feel planted Replacements are costly And will...

NAIL BAR Been to the nail bar What a girley Tailored fingers tingle Now they call me Shirley Preened at the nail bar Talons all in tact For plucking on the old guitar Cleaning up my act This nail bar rocks Ticks all the boxes Hands only for my one trick pony Feels like they stopped the clocks When I...

OLD BLACK CROW Old black crow, he knows my name Calling out to me again He would show me how to fly And just how to live a life They say that only time will tell That old black crow he knows me well Black crow is captain of the sky Casting shadows in my eyes Over woodland over hills Through summer’s...
