Ode to Larry Robinson

in Poetry

Don't know if you heard but Larry Robinson he of the great rock 'n' blues band open mic host at the old Packing House we went to hear when your father died

Don’t know if you heard

He was beaten last night a robbery at the music store left bound and bloodied beaten to death suspect still at large

Don’t know if you heard

No, no I didn't hear that Oh my god Sometimes I just hate people Oh no, oh no, oh no, He played for our wedding

Don’t know if you heard

Perhaps his music filled the store wrapping around him holding him as he waited to be found

Don’t know if you heard.

With sorrow and love, K-B
