R. Gerry Fabian

Memphis 2AM
Blues filter from the bars
along Beale street.
Lost lovers, unrequited lovers,
unfaithful lovers and, of course,
circumstantial lovers are mourned
with wailing harmonicas,
bent stringed electric moans,
a head pounding bass
and a bottom beat
that drives through the soul.
Since you left
this is all I have to
cheer me up.
