Jack Horne is on the correct side of the pond, again

Hi, Thorn.

Have written a poem for the contest.
Have a great weekend : )


by Jack Horne

He struts around the stage, in ladies’ shoes

smiling, singing, strumming

wild curls, wide flares, floral jacket
it’s nineteen-seventy-one-or-two, not today
but I see him, hear him: a man no longer living
(although he’s alive forever in that footage)
I time travel in my mind and his Mini hasn’t crashed yet
so I will watch the film once more and let him live…
.* inspired by Marc Bolan
(Editor’s note from Wikipedia: Marc Bolan (pron. BOE-lən; born Mark Feld; 30 September 1947 – 16 September 1977) was an English singer-songwriter, poet and guitarist. He is best known as the frontman of glam rock group T. Rex.  Died in a car wreck as he was approaching wider recognition for his talents)

    A very nice tribute to a true artist, Jack, because it rocks, it rolls and it honors the glam of living life without restrain.

    Thorn should let AWwYP have a poetry contest. What fun THAT would be. But tis a foregone conclusion, aborted before fruition. This one would definitely be a contender. It is a textured vignette of image and memory.
