Why I Like Oldies So Much

Confessions should be true

and here I go talking out the side

of my teeth to say that

which goes without uttering.

.

Listening to the music

that pervaded my memory

in 1950-1965, or somewhere

up in there, I get past

the work life years, and child

rearing years to float

among the decades where

care was free and being broke

was no biggie.

.

So, crank me up some oldies

and keep the Hop and let me bop.

Some blues'll do, but rock 

and metal, mostly, hurt.

.

That sound you hear is the soul

cracking open unleasing

a beat so close to your heart's

drum you can not distinguish

which is heart and which 

is the oldie and all you know

is it's all good.
