Separate Ways

“Try to remember the kind of September
When life was young and oh, so mellow…
When grass was green and grain was yellow…
When you were a tender and callow fellow…
And no one wept except the willow…
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow.”

– fr. lyrics of  Try to Remember, The Lettermen



tonight, our paths separated.
gone now, covert love we started.
the amber ember in September dies
in silent conspiracy with black skies.

a dozen years of cheers and tears –
and now, half-dozen frozen beers
and pilsen peers for company;
i blight by flight of Ebony.

on impaled impasse now I pause
as another chapter I close

in the first king’s Book of Flings.

cheer and tear
is beer.

peer and dear
is beer.)

– beer is between beer and beer.
