Daily Poem # 4 – Skip Barber Died (Song?)

Daily Poem # 1 – Legerdemain

Ergonomic Economic Very frugal my legerdemain It’s a magic That is clicking Constant warmup …clock is ticking… You Won’t catch up It’s The brain Gotta balance some elixir esoteric as the East So you pop and so you stumble in the service of the…

How is all of the magic Of an embrace Worn away by the Idleness Of passing from place to place With the day to day All we can say Is come what may What for What for The sound of nails in the coffin…

  I came up with the main lyrical idea years ago. Round 2011 or so while on a hike. Apologies for the strained vocals. I’m not a natural singer and it takes some serious concentration to do the dirty deed. As such it does…
