(not your)Nashville Blues(for Charlie Musselwhite)

dark
room and
a
cigarette
flame to guide
me
home
in a sound
thumb
to
stick
before the orange
flash
of light
back in the grey
black
leather
(smoke rises)
purifies
the jacket
microphone
steel
pole waiting for
sound
and i won’t speak
won’t
say a word
a
pome
or
poem
just, ‘ahh’
exhale
and step back into the darkness
match stick
love
moment gone
not the white man’s
blues
just a cigarette
and
a
dark
room
