don’t sweatheart me
you always hurt
the one you love

the music stopped
and her tears
flowed like wine

into each life
some rain must fall
I’ll get by


Day 86 of 100 of a magical challenge that combines my love for music and my desire that some day I will write yet again. The poem above is a collage of song titles that topped the charts throughout the year 1944. My rather exciting goal is to create one “collage poem” every day for 100 consecutive days.

Illuminated, 2013
