hello RWNN and thanks to all for checking in - but much props to L'Orange for making this music - coming up the phone interview I did with him - edited down to fit in as much as possible of his music…..REST IN POWER TO RIX - that's him at top of playlist

Take a note slightly flat
with barely a breath, listen for
a bird singing in that air.

The note departs slowly, sadly,
waiting while a cloud changes shape,
something almost promised.

The eyes cannot hold it,
the ears will not grasp its form
yet the heart remembers it well

as a wind tearing a map
from the fingers, watching it
blowing away, not chasing it.

poem by BOB "RIX" RIXON
Zip Code

I will go to that place where there
are mountains to look at but none
I must climb, & the ocean is there
also, the receding tide leaves
unbroken shells for the picking.

The boardwalk never closes
before midnight, every month
is August. Each poem I write
will be published
in the morning newspaper.

I'm bobbing my head like nonstop for the past ten minutes.
