A Will Dockery (poem) with music by Brian Mallard & Jack Snipe aka The Shadowville All-Stars.

==========================================================

Missy's Heart

"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"

Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.

She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.

Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.

Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.

A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.

And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.

Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.

A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.

China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.

One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.

A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

Hello, Jimmy... well, I would have liked a better mix on this, but the more I listened to this rough take, the more I started liking it, put me in mind of the "muddy" Exile on Main Street, and in a way, the sound of Bowie's "Watch That Man", both with submerged vocals.

I clearer mix is no doubt on the way somewhat soo.

And, I've loved Zevon for many years, another one gone too soon.

Yes, we were discussing that while standing on the corner downtown last night, after our show.

An old friend of Kantner, Bob Harvey, (the original bass player for Jefferson Airplane, when they were still a folkie group) is a friend of mine, Bob moved down south here when he retired, I need to go down the country and visit him, very soon.

Life is brief.

That reads like a compliment, mostly...

I always did admire Mark Twain.

Oh yes, Jimmy, to answer that question, I always record my vocals on another track on the studio cuts. And yes, the vocals should have been much higher, but I got in a hurry to put this out, as is, and let the chips fall where they may.

Another version or two will follow, for sure.

Thanks again for the listen and critique, Jimmy.

You are a discusting troll impersonating a dead woman.

Go on, ask anyone here... you are not welcome on this group.

You are a sleazy scumbag, and I have no idea what your point is even being here....

Well, TBH, since you asked, it doesn't seem like much of a poem to me.
Backtracking a bit, how does it not seem a poem to you?
What criteria does it lack that makes it "not a poem"?
Quite curious.
:)
Omg, I can't even finish it, I feel so dumb, my reading comprehension is such cr*p; this time, I got all the rhymes, and it flowed nicely, and it's DEFINITELY a poem. To bring clarity and understanding further into my reading disability (for real, well, not diagnosed), I can read a poem, and have NO IDEA what I'm reading, or anything really, and then again and again, either right away, or over time going back to it, and then suddenly it will make sense to me, or at least a lot more sense, and I get what I'm reading about, either all, or for the most part. I'm just so LAZY. (except when I'm hypomanic, or sometimes, certain writing will just get through, and we click...)
PS to Bill I believe it was (!?!?!), who said my G'ma poem looked like I struggled and sweated over it, as opposed to it coming easy, which would make it good, I don't know if he's messing with me (ahem, is this my narcissism shining through???) anyway, but those first two G'ma poems came very very easily, practically off the top of my head, on the day she I learned she passed (I think mom called me on a Sunday morning, or that could have been when I wrote a different poem, "A Mother's Touch.") I could look it up, but I'm too lazy.. Anyway, it was the last of the trilogy over which I struggled and strifed ( ;-) ahem...) for a handful of days, non-stop, continuously, save for eat, sleep, and shower. So just narcissistically curious here, would that change your opinion on it (the first one) to make it a good poem? :-//// (PLEASE don't change it just to humor me. I hate that!) It's okay if you still don't like it. I like it. :) :)?
I hope you are doing well Rachel....

I can look for Gary Snyder's "Turtle Island" poetry book.
A good book if you can still find it, not sure if it is still in print.
I know little of Snyder except his character in the Dharma Bums novel....

Missy's Heart
"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"
Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.
She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.
Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.
Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.
And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.
Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

There is reason why it is "free". No one would pay
On the contrary, Dink, my Shadowville Speedway record album is doing some brisk sales at ten bucks a pop:

Missy's Heart
"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"
Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.
She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.
Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.
Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.
And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.
Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

Who in the HELL would pay $10 for YOUR crap?
That would be like paying to get into Disneyworld and having your penis severed on the Small World ride.

Well, TBH, since you asked, it doesn't seem like much of a poem to me. I could barely even get through it (I withdrew before the last couple stanzas). I appreciated the few rhymes there, made me smile. Not that all poetry has to rhyme, FOR SURE, but this just doesn't seem like much of a poem to me, as I said.

Sorry. :-(((

No, it is okay to not like something I've written, Rachel... after all, you're on record in the archives that you actually have loved numerous poems of mine.

Plus, did you ever listen to the audio track, where I read/sing it?

That might help.

Or not...

I really like the music, and I can tell you've changed the lyrics, and it got annoying, cuz I couldn't follow along, so I shut it off.

If you print out the lyrics (post them I mean), I would have a better chance.

PS Sorry I haven't sent you my address yet, but I'm just not feeling well today. (since the last couple hours or less).

from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.
And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.
Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

Well, TBH, since you asked, it doesn't seem like much of a poem to me. I could barely even get through it (I withdrew before the last couple stanzas). I appreciated the few rhymes there, made me smile. Not that all poetry has to rhyme, FOR SURE, but this just doesn't seem like much of a poem to me, as I said.
Sorry. :-(((
I'd probably have to really really concentrate, to get into it, to see it how you see it, Will.
Maybe I need some amphetamine! (lol)
In my old age I'm more of a Goody powder & coffee man, myself.
:D
What the f*ck is Goody powder, and is it safe, and where can I get it, and should I try it, too???? :-D :-/////

Missy's Heart
"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"
Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.
She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.
Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.
Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,

Goody, BC or Stanback powders, but I sort of prefer Goody powders out of the three these days, a Mill worker tradition, take a powder and some coffee to get the day rolling on those big weaving machines and so on.
Post by Rachel
bc?
but....really? does decaf work or is it the caffeine that does it?
===========
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BC_Powder

BC Powder is an over-the-counter analgesic pain reliever owned by Prestige Brands and manufactured in Memphis, TN. It was conceived at the Five Points Drug Company in Durham, North Carolina, in 1906, by Germain Bernard and C. T. Council, who took the initials of their last names to create the name of the nascent product. Originally produced at the Hepolscheiemer Clinic in Graz, Austria, it contains 845 mg of aspirin and 65 mg of caffeine. BC readily promotes the fact that, due to its powder form, it dissolves faster than pain-relief tablets, and thus gets to work faster. It can be taken in a variety of ways, most commonly mixed into water or soda. BC is sold almost exclusively in the American South, where it is acknowledged to have a cult following. BC's marketers enjoy this honor, and sponsor many sporting events in the region. Indeed, the product's distinctive, oval-shaped blue logo is a familiar sight to fans at Southern League (baseball) parks.

Thanks, Rachel... the ear did continue to bother me some, but yes, the coffee, Goody powders, and (sorry, but it really works for me) Zinc have kept me rolling pretty smoothly.

Hold up, wasn't it you who told me Zinc gave you some kind of ear troubles?

Wow... maybe I better back off on the Zinc a bit.

Not ear trouble. Excruciating electrical/neurological pain in my body, from 50 mg pills, one a day. Even though in a blood test, my levels from the pills was still normal, although of course, I don't know how long you have to be on it, for it to get in your blood. As soon as I stopped taking them, it went away.

:)
Omg, I can't even finish it, I feel so dumb, my reading comprehension is such cr*p; this time, I got all the rhymes, and it flowed nicely, and it's DEFINITELY a poem. To bring clarity and understanding further into my reading disability (for real, well, not diagnosed), I can read a poem, and have NO IDEA what I'm reading, or anything really, and then again and again, either right away, or over time going back to it, and then suddenly it will make sense to me, or at least a lot more sense, and I get what I'm reading about, either all, or for the most part. I'm just so LAZY. (except when I'm hypomanic, or sometimes, certain writing will just get through, and we click...)

PS to Bill I believe it was (!?!?!), who said my G'ma poem looked like I struggled and sweated over it, as opposed to it coming easy, which would make it good, I don't know if he's messing with me (ahem, is this my narcissism shining through???) anyway, but those first two G'ma poems came very very easily, practically off the top of my head, on the day she I learned she passed (I think mom called me on a Sunday morning, or that could have been when I wrote a different poem, "A Mother's Touch.") I could look it up, but I'm too lazy.. Anyway, it was the last of the trilogy over which I struggled and strifed ( ;-) ahem...) for a handful of days, non-stop, continuously, save for eat, sleep, and shower. So just narcissistically curious here, would that change your opinion on it (the first one) to make it a good poem? :-//// (PLEASE don't change it just to humor me. I hate that!) It's okay if you still don't like it. I like it. :) :)?

A Will Dockery (poem) with music by Brian Mallard & Jack Snipe aka The
Shadowville All-Stars.
==========================================================
Missy's Heart
"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"
Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.
She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.
Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.
Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.
And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.
Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

================================================
Well, TBH, since you asked, it doesn't seem like much of a poem to me.
Backtracking a bit, how does it not seem a poem to you?
What criteria does it lack that makes it "not a poem"?
Quite curious.
:)
Omg, I can't even finish it, I feel so dumb, my reading comprehension is such cr*p; this time, I got all the rhymes, and it flowed nicely, and it's DEFINITELY a poem. To bring clarity and understanding further into my reading disability (for real, well, not diagnosed), I can read a poem, and have NO IDEA what I'm reading, or anything really, and then again and again, either right away, or over time going back to it, and then suddenly it will make sense to me, or at least a lot more sense, and I get what I'm reading about, either all, or for the most part. I'm just so LAZY. (except when I'm hypomanic, or sometimes, certain writing will just get through, and we click...)
PS to Bill I believe it was (!?!?!), who said my G'ma poem looked like I struggled and sweated over it, as opposed to it coming easy, which would make it good, I don't know if he's messing with me (ahem, is this my narcissism shining through???) anyway, but those first two G'ma poems came very very easily, practically off the top of my head, on the day she I learned she passed (I think mom called me on a Sunday morning, or that could have been when I wrote a different poem, "A Mother's Touch.") I could look it up, but I'm too lazy.. Anyway, it was the last of the trilogy over which I struggled and strifed ( ;-) ahem...) for a handful of days, non-stop, continuously, save for eat, sleep, and shower. So just narcissistically curious here, would that change your opinion on it (the first one) to make it a good poem? :-//// (PLEASE don't change it just to humor me. I hate that!) It's okay if you still don't like it. I like it. :) :)?
Billy Joel wrote a good song about that sentiment.

:)

Got to run for a while... I didn't read all this yet because someone is banging on the door.

But, I DID post this one because you seemed to like it, in comments elsewhere... I forgot what you liked about it without looking, my singing, or the words, or something like that:

Posted a new song. Check out the free download of the day: "She Loves Bossa Nova" / Will Dockery & Brian Mallard:
http://www.reverbnation.com/q/6fttm1

I wish you'd refresh my memory if you can, because whatever it was I sure did like, because I wasn't going to post this one yet.

So... there you have it.

I liked both, the singing and the lyrics were okay, interesting, good. You said you wrote it to the music, which was impressive, but I mean, listening to it, I couldn't believe you made it up off the top of your head while the music was playing, and you sang along, that would blow my f*cking mind, but I sorta imagined you heard the music, quickly wrote the lyrics, then sang along? You never told me which it was...Either way, I like it... :)

Really, I had some ideas in my head, and I played the track two or three times, and watched her move in my mind's eye... then I cued the track and started telling Eileen's story (I haven't seen her in at least a year, and even then just for a few moments in a thrift store downtown, so she probably hasn't heard this and maybe never will). Nothing was written down until later, when I took the tape home and played it back, trying to type it up.

You can notice, possibly, how the last few lines kind of fall apart... which seems to add to the effect of it all, I'm saying.

I just found this looking for archived mentions of local poet Nick Norwood, which for some reason brought me here.

Thanks belatedly, Rachel, this was really nice feedback on my poem.

she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

================================================
Well, TBH, since you asked, it doesn't seem like much of a poem to me. I
could barely even get through it (I withdrew before the last couple
stanzas). I appreciated the few rhymes there, made me smile. Not that all
poetry has to rhyme, FOR SURE, but this just doesn't seem like much of a
poem to me, as I said.

Sorry. :-(((

=================================================

For real?

That's kind of perplexing to me.

Post by Will Dockery
A Will Dockery (poem) with music by Brian Mallard & Jack Snipe aka The Shadowville All-Stars.
==========================================================
Missy's Heart
"14 days of booze and floozies.."
my friend said to me
"Getting settled in Down South, I see?"
Missy's in town
all the way from N-O-L-A
In the motor lodge across from
Sandy's café.
She smiles too much
to be for real
give her a dub
for a little feel.
A few more miles to Alabama
I drop another dollar
in the well.
Missy smiles out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
She asks
where I want to put it.
Magnolia springtime
smoky haze
"Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait."
The carnival's back in town
although we've both
seen better days.
Homebrew molasses
watch her hands
fresh off a bus
from New Orleans
just about Midnight.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop of water
in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
My friend Stan
cancels the plan
he's lost his heart.
And lost his taste
sniffs the cinnamon
endures the noisy morning.
Darkwood dances
under a grey muddled sky.
Stan limply flicks
honey stones
to his sweet muse.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop
closer to Hell.
Missy smiles out
the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.
Hot silver stem
she smokes her curiosities
tumbling monkey shines.
China girl sings a TV jingle
blue eyed chattering
humming on his head.
One more dip
in her kissing booth
one more ring of roses
across her bed.
A few more miles to Alabama,
another drop in the well.
Missy smiles
out the window of her room
at the Heart of Columbus Motel.

Fellow poets, please welcome my friend Andrew Liebling to the group.
You have no friends, Dreckster.

You have a handful of real-life acquaintances, from whom you steal and
whose corpses you drag around Usenet when they die of drink, but
that's not quite the same thing.

If Andrew Liebling writes poetry, comments on poetry, or is interested
in learning how to write and comment on poetry, the newsgroup FAQ will
provide him with a good starting point.

Here was the poetry event of the week down here in Columbus Georgia (wish I was back in Tennessee) which I missed because I was downtown at the Courthouse paying a traffic fine, and then making the rounds of the auto parts store, pricing a car part for Brother Dave's car (who says tell Corey hello and that he missies him):

This is a friendly reminder that the GA Poetry Circuit poet Andrea Hollander will be visiting the Smith-McCullers House this evening.

Hollander will hold a talk/Q&A at 4:00pm, followed by a poetry reading at 7:30pm. Both events are free and open to the public.

We look forward to seeing you there!

No GJ, Misty is a girl who has been in the scene over twenty years, a poet and much more.

Missy just drifted by, sweetened my night, and was gone by morning light, like a melted "kiss-sickle".

Yes, "The Ballad of Wispy" tells Misty's story, among other poems.

Missy is more of a one shot pony, apparently, since she vanished from right not long after I met her.
