Missing my life away
I do remember, Eagle-man. I made up this song a few years ago...hadn't listened to it for a long while. Last week I visited an old friend who is 70% lost to Parkinson's but still fresh on our boyhood friendship. Two rooms away I could hear an old woman weeping inconsolably like a child...for some reason, I pictured my own wife in such a state with me passed on and nobody to console her. It did cost me a tear. I thought again of "Missing my life away."
I am a long way from having been a religious-minded person, though I still believe in the sacred and in hope. I met a young fellow years ago on Boston Common who confessed to being a crack addict headed for a meeting-still, he made time to give me a quick tour of parts of the city apparently reserved for tourists-for example, he showed me the building where there was a jail that held Captain Kidd until he was returned to England to be hanged-there was a plaque I passed a thousand times walking
A sign of weakness
this is an approximately true tale about someone to whom I have been very close my whole life...for the vamp, I pulled out a jazz guy's idea of a rock line,,,first teacher Tony DiFasio was probably the only actual genius I ever worked with (maybe just an exagerration from my low frame of reference-though my IQ of 89 is like an A minus where I come from, so folks should pay close attention.
I had known Mac for many years…and I never knew him to have an easy go of things right out of the box. Maybe 10 years ago he had some trouble relative to selling cocaine. His co-workers at the post office took to calling him Miami Mac, while his lawyer (a known marijuana user) got enough continuances that Mac’s charges were eventually dismissed. Mac told me all this, and I never did inquire whether he was actually guilty.
I saw Mac again maybe 5 years later (I don’t get over that way often)
thinking of those guys who grew up without a father and had some special relationship to "ma"-maybe one could only love a child as much...
