Blues Moon

Blues Moon
     for Raised by Wolves

Fog, fog
can’t see anything
its blocking life
a long time back
I was certain
about everything
now I’m certain
about nothing
will I see the pretty fillies
dancing, prancing
to your music
in the Highlands
only five days away
music of the gods
loud enough to wake up
all our souls
the music you play
makes us happy, joyous
cuts through
the crust of despair
you are the doctors
of the hearts
of everyone in the audience
fending off worry, pain
making life bearable
with strings, drums
I can’t wait to hear
life going on
through your sound
in our foggy little Heaven

Listening to Lucinda Williams “World Without Tears”
