Mister Joe Jangles

Rating: 3.0

Mister Joe, poet, jangles loose change in his pocket,
Jogging memories and garnering thoughts as he walks.
For Mr. Joe's brain washes, tumbles and dries,
his gems of thoughts in hourly cycles, with riddles, jingles and rhymes.
Each wash-up, extracted, pegged, and hung up to dry,
To taunt and flap jangles for him, his readers and strangers near by.

Mister Joe's charm icons are processed, mulled over, distilled and wrung out for meaning within.
His jangles find meaning in bumps on smooth paper, read as Braille.
His jangles arise from stones skipped over calm smooth waters,

yielding meaning in the creases and ripples created.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Background: With apologies to Jerry Jeff Walker for his famous song 'Mr. Bojangles' recorded in 1968, in his album of the same title, and sung by many famous performers.
'I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you in worn out shoes'

The lyrics of this song jangle on constant replay, in many old heads throughout the world including mine.

Like a jingle you cannot forget, that keeps popping up in echoes, triggered by various thoughts and memories.
