Moonbeam Scene

Moonbeam Scene

A Chapter by Dave Brown



The scene; neath brightest moonbeam

Oh yeah, its real, not some crazy type dream

Although, it may seem a kina odd sorta theme

Especially with no trace of any bloodstream


With his music not offering even a stutter

His stage stompin earning neither bread nor butter

His rhythm and beat leaving no hearts aflutter

And the only happy is some lame nutter


They’d put him down deep underground

With all thinking that’s the end of his sound

But find instead after askin around

A sweet beat’s comin from the latest mound


No bone groan but instead tone of saxophone

And guitar playing to match that ‘phone’ tone

A Cadence of gyrating cadaver’s all get goin

In a pine box, prone, neath a happin headstone  


Hop of the hip, bling’s night’s graveyard a-jive

Flip floppin and be-boppin from midnight to five

A testament that music will always survive

Even way down in this underground archive

Sorry folks, I keep waking up in the middle of the night and these sorts of things are the unfortunate result

My insomnia is legendary. I hardly ever sleep more than an hour at a stretch. So, I wake up dozens of times thru-out the night & I'm discombobulated like in your poem, getting all funk-a-fied by lack of sleep. If I turn on a movie, it'll lull me into a blank-mind state, possibly sleepy-time . . . but if I lie there in the profound silence of midnight wilderness, my thought waves bee-bop a radical jig just like in your poem (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

it actually pee's me off but I better get used to it
A graveyard rave by the sounds of it all under a full moon. You gave me some great imagery here. Skelly bones having a blast, jiving to the jazz. What an imagination you have Dave. Too much cheese late at night :))

It was a pre New Years hangover that prompted all this

Ah, that explains it. It is 5.15pm here. Just getting ready to cook dinner. Cold day.
