Lyrics

Touch of Outlaw 
(Dalson/Kelley 2016) 
Verse 1 
You never gave up the bike, 
the cigarettes or whiskey, 
you’re precise in what you like, 
and it needs to be risky. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Verse 2 
I’ll be with you on that bike, 
drinking, smoking, I’m right there, 
even if the worse should strike, 
I will always be right there. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Instrumental 

Bridge 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Ohhhh, don’t care where we’ve been. 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Don’t know the meaning of sin. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw.

One More Crime
(Shields/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1
Turn off the lights,
Come back to my bed,
I know it’s not right.
Hold me instead . . .
One more time,

Verse 2
One more crime.
Hear my soul cry,
Make me believe
All those lies . . .
for one more crime,
Share my dreams,
when the night get cold,
Comfort me,

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Instrumental

Verse 3
One more crime,
Before you go,
One more thing
I need to know,
Why can’t you love me?
One more time,
to say goodbye to me,
would be the real crime.

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Annie Easily Unraveled Poem – About Anne Sexton

Anne Sexton (1928-1974) was an American poet known for her unadulterated chronicling of intimate and socially taboo subjects. She won the Pulitzer in 1967 for “Love or Die,” and gave her answer to that title in 1974 with her death by her own hand. She once wrote of frequent drinking dates at the Ritz with Sylvia Plath: “Often, very often, Sylvia and I would talk at length about our first suicides; at length, in detail, and in depth between the free potato chips. Suicide is, after all, the opposite of a poem.”

Poetry & Eros

An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex. Aldous Huxley I never married Poetry. I’ve slept with her many times, engaged wonderful romps with her, and understand the passion and lust to be found with her; I know her allure, her...

The Emperor Decides to Kill Catherine – Poem about Catherine of Alexandria

Read “The Emperor Decides to Kill Catherine” poem offered in the post.

Authors Notes about The Emperor Decides to Kill Catherine: Catherine of Alexandria, (circa 213?), was a Roman Catholic saint, whose beauty so impressed the Roman Emperor Maximian that he offered to overlook her refusal to sacrifice to the gods if she would only submit to his desires. Catherine rejected his overtures, saying she was already the bride of Christ, and even converted the fifty philosophers Maximian convened to change her mind. The emperor beheaded the philosophers, then attempted to have Catherine broken on a spiked wheel, however it miraculously shattered. Instead Maximian had her beheaded, yet when he did, milk flowed from her severed neck. Where this tale was highly popular in the medieval West, most historians think it is probable Catherine never existed. Joan of Arc, though, did not concur with such skeptics; Catherine was one of the three saints Joan claimed appeared to her to offer advice in her military endeavors.

Wasisms – The Best Writing Tip of My Career

About thirty years ago an editor I knew told me to lose all those dreaded little words in my prose, the words making my work dull. He said I should always write around: is, was, that, and had. Today I call them ‘wasisms.’ But thirty years ago, I responded the way my...

Why Write Poetry?

Why write poetry? Where Rilke’s answer to this question was, “Because it’s necessary,” I would like to suggest bumping it up a notch; I’d rather call it a compulsion. I write poetry because I’m compelled to do so. I’ve actually tried to avoid it for snatches of years...

Jesus & the Buddha – Note for the author

As I rummaged through notes I made 15 years ago, I came across some I made about the inventor of the Dewey decimal System. Where this might appear odd coming from a poet, I think you might agree this note overflows with the essence of poetry. See what you think:

Ordog, Ahriman and the mythological world of Divine Murder

In Divine Murder, “Ordog apparently realized it missed these easy human targets and they weren’t crushed dead under its foot. It spied them running toward a door in the near wall. But before the beast struck again, Ahriman sprinted from the computer area and leaped on the monster’s ankle. “

Jesus & the Buddha Song – Notes from the Lyrist

The ‘wild’ idea which generated the writing of Jesus & the Buddha was the theological urban myth how the historical Jesus and the Buddha actually met during the biblical gap in the life of Jesus.
