The Love Songs of

Jenn Grant

some,times
it takes me
a sleep
to feel the words
(welling up)
the Emotions
of a performance,

it’s a romance
another chance
encounter

with the heart
with dreams
with beauty

as soon as Jenn’s
65 minute set
began

i knew
i had another date,

with a gorgeous voice
and more

endearing enchanting
between song bante(ring)
every set is a marriage

a holy thing
an act of faith
a leap
an open heart

between Lovers.

audience and musicians/

O, beautiful hearts

there were about
100 beautiful
hearts
last night
at the best venue
in Winnipeg

The Park Theatre

with an owner
(Erick) who passionately
cares and shares
his sculpted dreams/
he molds visions
from clay
and fires them
in the kiln

with Love.

melodies
Jenn Grant’s tunes
and harmonies
graceful movement
an ocean dance
like tides
rolling

smoothly
caressing
our rocky spines
(these magnificent tingles)
our easily accessible shorelines

with Love.

Rainy Day
Heartbreaker
You’ll Go Far
Two of You
Week or Two
Dreamer
Unique New York
White Horses
All Year
SBSS
Let’s Get Started

encore,

Where Are You Now
Don’t Lose Yourself

every female singer
i have seen
who records under
the Six Shooter Records banner
is
the possessor
of
(with Love)
a(n enormously) gorgeous voice
and (wondrously) thoughtful
poetic songs
lyrics
like Cohen
like Waits
like silk
sliding and gliding and riding
our naked/most topography
these curves
these hills
these valleys
these peaks
these astonishing
tingles

Jenn Grant
is
with Love
her voice
breathes
lightly
in your ear
and whispers
gently
in your heart
pulsing
and coursing
through
veins and arteries

this is life
with Love,
and
this is Now
and how
when the moment
becomes where
an uncommon dare
and why is the moon
and the stars
and oceans
dance

movie/house)
floors.
