BLUES

OGDEN   GALLERY   BLUES

I am eating too much   drinking too much

Rough men with red faces are shouting at me

on the streets of the Vieux Carre´   While a giant

black rocking horse covered in Mardi Gras beads

is threatening to carry me home

 

A man in a white cap   & yellow coat  says:

Oh   you are perfect baby   perfect   I came to see

art    &  now there is you       

 

While my husband and brother jump  into a cab

without me!   Abandoned there like a motherless

child    on the shores  O’  the great Mississippi –
