Three Poems by Kevin Peery

LONESOME LUKE

The
Oak Hill
police
found some
empty
Falstaff cans
and handwritten
lyrics
to the
last song
ever penned by
Luke the Drifter

They
were
scattered
in the
backseat
of that
baby blue
Fifty-Two
Cadillac
convertible…
as
Jambalaya
rattled
softly
on the
radio

____________

 

ROCKIN’ RANDALL

When
the
snow
collapsed
on
Ajax
Peek…
Rockin’
Randall
fell
five
hundred
feet…

And
it
took
him
almost
two
years
to
learn
how
to
talk
and
sing
again

____________

ELEVEN YEARS

They
say
ole
Lefty
drank
himself
to
death
in
July
of
75…

But
all
evidence
suggests
he’d
been
walkin’
toward
the
spirit
realm
for
at
least
eleven
years
