Notes from the Overground: Thoughts On Touring 2010

               Notes from the Overground: Thoughts On Touring

Book, cd, performance, what!

I do not want to tour.

An effort that I could if forced,

But see through the illusions,

Effort great – to push and market,

Sign and meet;

Sell and spread:

Hotel bed.

What’s it mean?

Everybody’s doing it.

Television’s full of it:

Fame’s fortune in a wink –

They think.

There is no quickly.

It’s not valid?

This success a pallid despot

With a jealous eye

Towards quick eternity:

We want to be remembered.

It’s genetic – since the days we were

Neanderthals. (We’ve got their DNA)

Maybe it’s confirmation

From the grip, grope, group

That grabs you by the gargling throat.

It’s poetry

That’s fun.
