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

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
