I Don’t Mean to Disrespect the Dead but Werewolves of London is a Terrible Song

Saw him once
show at some tiny bar on the edge of town
Keely and I went. Keely
From what I remember
[you were the one with
the photographic memory]
he was terrific.
I remember Lawyers, Guns & Money, I remember
Werewolves, the whole crowd
howled along, he played
my favorite, Roland
the Headless Thompson Gunner, I remember
I’m sorry for everything

I remember Poor Poor Pitiful Me, I remember
Reconsider Me
Warren finally succumbed to cancer
I feel like I’m spinning, not in a good way.

I don’t regret everything
only nine tenths of it

I long
for just one sincere conversation

Just one

that never ends
