View from My Terrace     

(by my friend David Belmont)


She’s a rock and roll singer and a true dead ringer
For something like you ain’t never seen

                                                Robbie Robertson, 1970

trump got punk’d
by tik tok teens

uncle andy’s
road show closed
to rave reviews

no one wants it
to reopen

all manner of
wheeled devices
scurry thru the streets

dodge them
their faces
at half mask

on aural display
all night long

their debris
hits our now closed
first floor windows

dave chappelle does
27 spot on minutes
about 8 minutes
and 46 seconds

i share his love
for the young

creating the most
democratic moment
in the history
of the world

black lives matter
marching with

fred newman’s
demonstration dream
comes to life

our activity
is a drop
in the ocean

because the ocean
showed up

time for a swim

it’s father’s day

my father
would have loved this
