004 A Really Good Song

a really good song has your throat by the first eight-count
owning your heartbeat as it opens up wide

it lays on your tongue smooth as chocolate

Wow, what a wide open and vivid tribute to the power of music with lines to match the finest of musical phrases!
Now that's some cool, mellifluent jazz ya got blowing there, cat. Gorgeous couplets with perhaps, 'like sex without the consequence / instant zen, yours for the taking' being the best. On the flip-side, Greg
Also, 'YOU ARE MY SISTER' by same artist
This is amazing, it has such depth and meaning to so many, including myself. A Really Good Song? 'HOPE THERE'S SOMEONE'by ANTHONY AND THE JOHNSONS I really cried at this one when I felt the pain contained, and oh what a voice.
Loved this one so much that I even emailed it TO MYSELF! ! Scarlett
dear lori, i really love this one!
now this is a Classic! A really good song deserves a REALLY good poem like yours! keep up the good work! HBH
Super dug this one, especially the dementia line.
If I could give you a twenty on thin one, I would. There are so many good images, it is hard to choose the best, but I think my favorite is 'pumping rhythm intravenously like a sweet soul transfusion' or perhaps 'instant zen, yours for the taking.' Thanks for this. I am bookmarking it. Raynette
