Delirious!

while being sick this week, i’ve been feeling rather delirious at times, and came up with the two poems below. one… frivolous, cotton-candy fluff, and the other… based on an actual experience when i was 18, of witnessing one black man shatter a gallon-sized wine jug over the head of another black man. i witnessed this while drumming at the park with “puerto rican” percussionists. it was truly a horrific experience.

last night’s gig went well, considering i’ve been sick. yesterday morning i took a hot bath and then did yoga, then repeated the same thing before heading off to my jazz gig. it really helped! and i played with a jazz quartet (sax, piano, bass, drums) by the pool at some upscale condominium complex in del mar. it was a bit cold but i had my jacket, and tried to hide my coughing the best i could.

    well, i’m glad you’re feeling well enough to go out and perform… sheesh, how sick can you be?!? 😀 Just kidding.

    About Babel fish, that’s pretty bad too, but i will comment on it later after i compoare the two. Will let you know.

    Anyway, I realize that this is WAY too late, but I just recently noticed the birthday wish you posted LAST DECEMBER, and I wanted to thank you. I’m so lame, but I figure it’s better late than never.

    So Thanks a Bunch!
