JOHN DORSEY


cleveland whispers your name
for d.a. levy

you were    first street
credit millionaire    i ever
heard of    even if
all you    ever did
was raise   the
                      dead

you smoked    dreams and
dope and    shot words
into your
                  veins

this city    you never
lost faith in even
going on    a vision
quest to    dairy queen
on the    corner of
euclid
            ave

selling poetry    for 95
cents you    kept a
nickel for
                karma

you sang    true love
on buddha's    jukebox 30
yrs before    kurt cobain
found
          nirvana

you were    the heartbreak
kid with    a motown
                                soundtrack
