This Rock, Rock, Rock …

It’s a long old,

Slow old time

Comin’; limping

Kinda lop-sided

Down the dim-lit,

Low-blow alleyways

But it’s devil-bones simple

And soon flooding

My senses,

My soul.

And in the way that

A desperate-small,

Last, broken match

Can set a fire that


A whole bad-night’s

Hard darkness

And becomes the

Only truth; this

Rock, rock, rock

‘n’ roll, roll, roll

Lift, lift, lift me.

  1. “Low-blow alleyways” is just one example of your strong imagery. Beautifully done.
