LIQUID LUNCH: Blues Inspired Poetry by Stephen Bess

Blues & Roots: 2nd Set


Tonight is my Wednesday night prayer meeting
At the Anointed Church of God
I’ll be cryin’ the blues and moanin’ to the Lord
Until my tensions fall apart
Sometimes I feel like Jelly Roll got my soul
Until I hear Mingus play,
E’s Flat Ah’s Flat Too
