Back Stage Voice

by Nancy Ames

"Hey, man, listen -
that's a good song.
You can take that one
all the way to Texas.

Hey, man, listen -
in California, the poet
says that the ocean is a
wolf waiting to dissolve
our lives in its greedy
intestines, so you got to...

Hey, man, listen -
you got to hurry up, man,
and get the music out on
the airwaves, man... man?"


Author's Note: The poet in California is Richard Brautigan and the poem is called "A Boat". It's about a 60's moment.
