Current Jam: “Family and Genus,” Shakey Graves
If I ever wander on by
Flag me down and beg me to
Drop what I’m doing and sit beside you
Few things matter more to me, than
when you send a song my way,
something you heard in passing that
made you think of me.
or, even better, the moment it cued on
your pandora or
your spotify or
your google play –
perhaps a spark lit, a twinkle nicked, and I came
smiling into view.
Maybe a slight skip dropped into your step, because
you thought of us suddenly sharing the same strip of sidewalk.
Sharing a memory as it’s born before us.
I’d do the same – connect to you,
wave across that tight rope of time and space and
bring you closer to me, even if it’s only for 3:23.
