I Have This Thing

I have this thing about Patti Smith
Her street punk poetry
With back alley images
And anger towards righteousness
Mixed down into a driving beat

I have this thing about Annie Lennox
Her rhythmic’s sweet dreams
From a thousand twisted beauties
Shrouded in powdered nudity
Layered through aural sound barriers

I have this thing about Joni Mitchell
Her paved yellow taxis
Over blue summer lawns
Chasing circle game coyotes
Courting sparks of jazz folk

I have this thing about Janis Joplin
Her whiskey scorched cries
Filled with pearls of pain
While balling social chains
Into wrenching sonic layers

I have this thing about Yoko Ono
Her belief their love
Would absorb the hate
Until her primal screams
Became a choir at Lennon’s tomb
