Gene DeMaegd evolved from an Art of Poetry supporter to a participant when this collage by Brian Lackey inspired him to put pen to paper. Stop by Hickory Museum of Art and see what moves you! Photo courtesy of Gin Hurley, taken at the June 17, 2017 Art of Poetry event.
After “Past Lives” by Brian Lackey
cruising the back roads of Indiana
in a sweet ’66 Chevy van
wearing my black bandana
hoping not to run into the man
slamming in a cassette,
feeling no regret,
cranking up the volume,
only to hear a grinding sound
radio’s eating up the tape
I thought I was listening to Magic Bus,
but, to my dismay, I hear
Another One Bites The Dust
We’re all telling you to Go Gene! And I add Way to Go, Gene!! Looking forward to your next one!
Gene, that’s great….hope you get inspired again.
Always great to have a new person trying out expressing himself in poetry! Go, Gene!
Love it Gene … write more !
You go, Gene!!! A biker, an artist…and a poet. Who’d a thunk it??? Love it!!! Write some more!!
