Henry Grimes

(by my friend David Belmont)

Henry Grimes             

4.19.20

we lost another
sweet soul
this week

for the
second time

given up for dead
in the late 60s
henry was discovered
in 2002

for the
second time

ironically
his second career
was longer
than his first

i feel blessed
to have seen him
many times

once i saw him
play a duet
with himself

feathery
round bass notes
simultaneously
accompanied
by airy harmonics

i hope you
come around
again
henry
