Music Matters
Back in the nineties I created a lot of essays all loosely joined by A being about music B memoir related and C pertaining to how place affects creating music and how one listens. A mixed memoir called "Music Matters". Much of it I would heartily disown now , but not all - and who am I to judge now that the work is done, anyway? So I am resolved to dripping out the essays over the next few months, often without comment, sometimes with.

African Brother on the U Bahn
Geoffrey Armes - 2020-10-15 00:18:47+02:00

I think of you my African brother

On the train lost from home

Exiled in five languages

And you

Spanish speaker man in the rain

Asking for the airport home

I can tell you

I have lived far from home

Far from love

I hear your song

I know you belong

There and everywhere

But "not here," they cry

You cry

"Where is my heart to rest then?"

Human brothers

I sigh

Wend my way

Little left to say
