Poem: Play Me Some Blues


Play me some blues! I lost a love, maybe,

“That’s’ nothing to you!

Play me some blues! Let peace reign,

in me and you!

Play me some blues!

An epidemic caused my soul,

To feel somewhat bruised: Play me some blues!”

And write these words—with effaceable,

Conscious ink; Scribble upon my back,

“My heart, still, love you!”
