Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – Portrait of a Man

I started writing poetry when I was 15 – for a girl, of course. Broke my heart, or I suppose we broke each other’s – so I ran back to Alaska for a spell. I stopped years ago, though I occasionally turn one out. Probably for the best, as most of it was atrocious. Here are a number that found popularity. “Flowers” was my first.. written back when I was more mentally robust.

    Open your Eyes my Son!
    A New Universe has begun,
    And the sufferings of this one, shall soon be done!
    Open your Eyes my little one!
    Open your Eyes, open your Eyes, and let the Earth be my Witness, as I utter these words; ‘Father, forgive them, cause they know not what they have done!'”

    “Music is what happens, in between the noise”


    Miles Davis …
