Spicy Southern Blues

by Birdie Houston

Fried chicken, collards
Honey dews, fish fry
Bottle necked beer
Twilight and
Spicy southern blues
Spine tingling
Performed cornets wail
Classic base basing
Guitar strings cry
Harmonica's resurrect visions
Re-births of
Bessie Smith
Trixie Smith
Eve Taylor
Lizzie Miles
Georgia White...
Legendary gardenia wearing
Billy Holiday

Howling Wolf raised hair on
Grandma's back and
Countless ladies round the world
So did Blind Lemon Jefferson
Gater Mouth Brown
Robert Johnson
Lightning Hopkins
T-Bone Walker and Muddy Waters
Phonograph marathon

Heads rock
Mouths hummmmmmm
Couples dip slow,low
Eyes tighten,fingers snap
Hips wiggle
Lover's sing senously into
Tranced eyes kissing
Delicate listening ears
Feeling passion
Betrayal, blossoming love
Evolving from one magnetic
Powerful five lettered word
