Living to Tell

By BZ Niditch

Buzzing along
the Big Apple
waiting for the Duke record
composing between soundings
from the chilled out night
my weather beaten head
takes out all matter of facts
makes way by scabby walls
of city graffiti
up decrepit carpets
without an alibi
of living to tell
how I survive with song.
