New Guts

New Guts

Is what I savour like Lecter with Steak Tartare-

It’s because it’s of the meat and marrow

Of the reality of the places and deadly myths of America:

A new album from The Boss-Springsteen.


Relish the eating of this intestinal tract

Blues and folk with a bile of pop to imbibe or act.


Maybe soon, maybe never like M.L.K, or the Mohawk

He will be quoted in a new era’s American passport.


I know,   I ken he and his hert

Must weep sometimes

Enough to paddle canoes under the Brooklyn brig.


(ken-know; hert-heart; brig-bridge: Scots-English)
