works for the government

playing some music from waaaay back

& there in the middle of an old song

you came through singing

& I remembered how that happened

you wanted to go out & sing

try to make it as a singer songwriter

just you your old battered guitars

an amp & some attitude

& I captured you warming up

doing the me me me la la thing

then busking along to a fave song

I must have put that

into the middle of this old mixtape

to be found now & listened to

as I was going about my day

yeah you let me go

apparently I wasn’t supportive enough

even though some nights

I was your only audience

who also roadied your kit to & from

you work for the government now

processing paper at a desk

but here in the air today

your sound is still clear & bright
