DIED

THE DAY THE PURPLE MUSIC DIED

Riding high   Eve of 59th  fetal position but

today Rickie Lee’s delta disc bringing bliss

Now stuck in traffic  Brother texts: Prince died

Live dammit!   A crushing sadness  first Lou

then David  now Prince

 

The soundtrack to your life is dying   Panic pricks

Breathe deeply  Pull over?  Is this more insidious

weed hangover?   Is this real ?   At 9:43 Prince was

alive lying prone in an elevator (!) at Paisley Park   10:07

dead

 

Later that night Spike Lee looks way too happy    He

organized a Prince party in Brooklyn   Can I please be

a narcissist for a day?   Anderson Cooper: I was at a Prince 

concert in a hotel room!    But do look a little deeper at all

of  the famewhoring  gentle reader

 

There for all to see are: tall tales  +ecstatic confessions of

touching the diminutive man’s robes   Just another brick in the

self denial wall    Here today    Gone    Don’t look for me   I’m running

as fast as I can   the 10,000 things mirage is getting ratty at the edges

___

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope in sight
Don’t cry, he is coming

Prince  The Cross  Sign O’ The Times  1987

 

 

Spring 2016   RIP Prince Rogers Nelson   for David+our days on Lombard
