Poem: Redress

May 24, 2021



we drifted back

through the apartment,

retracing our twin trails

of panties and socks

sweaters and jeans

boots and belts


until we were

as we were


Memories of Bob Dylan and the Hawks

May 24, 2021

Happy 80th birthday to the one and only Bob Dylan.

In two days, it will be fifty-five years since I went to the Albert Hall in London to see Bob Dylan.  There were walk outs and cat calls in the second half as Dylan went electric accompanied by the earliest iteration of The Band (most of whom were from The Hawks).

I have a memory-sense that I enjoyed both halves of the show just as well, though the second half, the electric half,  was still unexpected even though one knew it was going to happen.
