mr bojangles


earthquakes shaking

the lands

desert trees

quivering singing

mr bojangles so calm

inside while the world

is breaking

all around falling


but not here

two guitars and a violin

a dog

called pretty and flowers

on the table like a scene

from a movie

door’s voice touching

my soul so deep


i’ve been reborn

again today

my skin is still hot

my body

still rocking

i’m in a dream

a dream

in the desert where

many have walked

in my body nude

on this rock

in the sun this

desert feeds my soul

what a magical place

it is

i think we can change

the world

with our love
