SPANISH JUNE

 

“Cocaine’s for horses, not for men,
they tell me it’ll kill me but they don’t say when,
cocaine run all ’round my brain…”

NOT A WOSSIT

 

On the occasion of his 75th birthday I am posting
a poem written in 1975 for Robert Wyatt, a small
tribute to one of the best drummers and innovative creative
geniuses in music for more than 50 years.
Thank you Robert! And Happy Birthday!
