The Kitchenette Motel

Sometimes an Obsolete Old bulb inside him Flickers on And dimly lights His woozy thoughts And thirst to write A song. Recall he's human, That's to say, he Thinks he Still adheres, Not just a washed-up Singer, missing Schedules to Appear. The stained and Scribbled rhymes Of scattered nonsense On the floor, Three gulps of Vodka, Bring applause, Adoring fans, Encore. Gene Bourne 06-01-14 .

Gene, I see you responding to someone called Richard Palmer. Why don't you go to his poetry and leave a comment over there so he will see it?
