The soul has much to say

Summer of '77...

 

Morning
feast

Cheerios
floating

in a gray
ocean

Sugar
overload

My burgundy Mohawk
a blur

Banana seat
Chopper handlebars

Smooth
ride

Screeching
halt

Watching Debbie
walk by

Sweet 16
My old lady

Hottest
babysitter

...ever

Hanging with
Ronnie

7 Eleven
Summit of youth

Grape Slurpees
Marvel comics

Pre-teen rites
of passage

Cicero County
comes alive

July Jamboree
is here again

Cotton candy
Cold hot dogs

Stealing a sip
of Bud

Uncle Luther still
doesn't know

First and last
Marlboro puff

Cover bands
galore

Manfred Mann's
Earth Band

Brothers
Johnson

Marvin
Gaye

Linda
Ronstadt

All of
8 years old

My music
library

already
extensive

Fireworks
set ablaze

the Appalachian
skyline

A couple kisses
in front of me

Old enough to make
the connection

Sleep
closing in

Piggybacking
Uncle Wesley

Longest Saturday
in history

The flavor
of 1977

on my
fingertips




Manfred Mann s Earth Band Blinded By The Light
