For Michael Guy

Pulled in at dusk,
my throat full of dust,
looking for love or lust,
followed by a cold beer.

This nondescript town,
in the middle of down,
their faces a frown,
what am I doing here?

It says I'm to play,
but at the end of the day,
I really can't say,
maybe the end of a career.

The piano's onstage,
it's showing its age,
when my fingers engage,
notes flow bright and clear.

I get my free drink,
and began to plink,
my voice starts to link,
one man at the bar,
gives a cheer.

They trickle in,
I sip on my gin,
I sing with a grin,
and without fear.

The crowd starts to warm,
they can do me no harm,
a few pats on the back,
and I'm out of here.

She came from behind,
hugged me with a grind,
her perfume was blind,
as she breathed in my ear.

With the night gone,
hand in hand, we stagger on,
to her flat just before dawn,
like we did last year.

When I finally wake,
I'm late for my next date,
coffee and a breakfast plate,
a kiss and pat on the rear.

Her eyes full of trust,
and my fulfilled lust,
I drive off into the dust,
and gradually disappear.

eeks! As far from my present life at 'ol Lake Stinkhole as you can get. Does look a little like me in the 80's (especially the cig.) but with jazz piano the bit about the chicks never happens, although I've played quite a few half=empty cafes, including playing behind a wall once to a dining room full of diners at an inn in New York where George Washing ton was supposed to have slept during the war. Even earned the Peking Duck dinner off the menu for that gig!
(Don't know whether to thank you, Ron - I'm embarrassed)

Aw shit Ron. NOW I understand your imitation comment. I'm three days behind in reviews and what are the odds of an exact title match? Truly I did not know in advance. Changing mine as we speak. Sorry. Patrick

Ron, I am overwhelmed with how remarkably accurate this poetic rendering paints the perfect picture of a "one night stand". A traveling musician's one night gig in a rural American town. I can hear music in the background softly playing the old CCR lament about being "stuck in old Lodi again". And Billy Joel playing the piano and crooning while "the regular set is getting stoned". The mental and physical highs and lows of that lifestyle must be consuming and are surely the measure of those of us who never lived that life. This work is a creative piece that highlights your many writing talents. From me to you, bravo my dear friend. Your talents always shine brightly. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael

You have recreated the experience very effectively via your verses and the reader (me, in this case) can "feel" it. Thank you, Ron. Love and peace to you,
