Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

The Original Midnight's Voice: Gene Crutcher


To
touch:
is everything
connecting everything
enduring beyond the pain

beyond:
always beyond
taking steps that go
beyond...
beyond....
...stardust...

Stretching far beyond
the lightyear...years...
beyond the voice...


The voice of a frustrated
taximan
On the southside in the rain
at midnight

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
