I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


He's practising drums

heavy on the snare and crash

bass pedal's wheezy click

preceding every double thud

it's only a small kit but played

as hard as arms and legs allow

sweating and breathing fast

through paradiddles and rolls

jungly rumbling punctuated

by a yelled FUCK before bursting

into faster furiouser late 90s

Green Dayish Offspringish

post-punk hard as nails beats

a ramming wall of bashing

morphing just as it gets maddening

into smooth syncopations

almost Chic disco wait is that

Superfreak or a Funkadelic riff?

without thinking I'm on my way

I'm opening the door

picking up a drumstick

and a cowbell.

Day 93 Loud

Just like old times.
