A low octave harmonica
over a Marilyn Monroe necktie
the old models run forever
blue velvet under red satin
white lightning coming up your lane
church on a Saturday
where the lights go out
for even Shakespeare gets the blues
tobacco stained Panama hat
and a National guitar
the language and music of the wolves
how do you want it glass or steel.
