Dig a Hole

–for Nathan Bell

 

Luther’s ink pot, play that guitar!

Happy the one without devils!

 

Leadbelly:

Gwine dig a hole

To put the Devil in…

 

Hereabouts

Lots of small “d” devs

Each with barbed wire

On the mind—

 

Please

Get a guitar.

 

For the love of babies

Play something.

 

Don’t talk “recording contract.”
