jigsaw
of rock n roll

theft and looting.

there are gems

diamond.

mostly/the songs are
too long. cut and edit
down to the essence
of the dance
(the movement)
of souls
into the hottest
grooves
of your terrific PoP
songs.

say it all,
in 2 or 3 minutes
max,
listen to Guided By Voices
for guidance and celebration
and travel the world
for experience.

be L Cohen
gather in your journals
the seeds
the lines
of PoP/rock
poetry.

take a mini
travel
acoustic guitar
and a friend with
a digi cam
and record
your street
shows.

and go viral
on youtube.

Tom Wilson
is
Lee Harvey Osmond
and always
is the poster punk
soul man
of acid rock,

sober for 12 years
his grooves
always
Lifts me to the highest
of highs
(sheerest cliff precipice
acid dance tripping!)
his friends
Like Frankie Venom
Willie P
were the truest punks and illimitable
passionate poets

of Canada’s music
scene.
