Terry Sue-Patt - d. May 22nd 2015

Somewhere a bell chimes
for lesson's end,
for day's end,
for term's end,
for school's end,

B.B.King - d. May 14th 2015

That sound; cotton motes, 
smoke and bourbon,
glistening strings
bent double with the blues,
the creak of an opening door
even sweet little angels
could not close.

Errol Brown - d. May 6th 2015

If you can't believe
in miracles
believe in these;
Tight rhythms. 
Tight clothing.
Sex. Funk.
The dance floor.
The dance.

Grace Lee Whitney - d. May 1st 2015

She was a tiny moon,
dark in the umbra
of a gaseous giant,
but once a week
the sun would call her
from the shadows,
paint her surface gold.

Ben E. King - d. April 30th 2015

Once you asked
what is soul?
it is your voice

poured into a glass, 
on a night
that never turned
to morning.
