Kurt Philip Behm

Pavement Scaping

Lost in the city,

floundering alone

caught on the hook

of an abandoned dream

fighting in vain

against modernity’s pull

living the lie

—of eternity’s pain

 

(The New Room: July, 2021)

    I heard someone ask him please
    Please
    Mr Bojangles
    Dance

      In 1972, Jerry Jeff Walker sang that song in my living room.

        Kurt,

        What a thrill to have Jerry Jeff Walker sing ‘Mr. Bojangles’ in your living room.

        Wish I had been there.😉

        JJ liked to drink even more than he liked to sing. It was almost the end of him.

        Wild times!

          in my dreams!😊

          Wild times!
