This is the second version of my latest song, “Scared of the Light.” Last week I posted the solo acoustic version. This one is dubbed, for lack of a better name, the swamp gumboversion. (You’ll see why.)
Coming next: the full, Pass the Dust, I’m Apparently Under the Profoundly Mistaken Belief I’m Bowie version.
You can see the river
from the place where he drowned
whisky after whisky until dry land
was just a wistful dream
proud and plowed under.
He felt like seaweed
trapped in a current
ever farther to sea.
