ride the musical train by R.D. McManes

here it is
the inside story
elvis is alive (he is very old)
i’ve seen him
on street corners
and velvet paintings
adorn bedroom walls

lennon’s passing
took the fab out of four
george is gone too
paul and ringo
still with us
half the beatles
willhave to do

jimi still has a band
somewhere out there
electrons dance
to his latest refrain
purple flashes in the haze
and my old eyes mist
with experience
