Ode to Brian Jones

Recently went to see the Rolling Stones’ Exhibitionism at the Musicians Hall of Fame here in Nashville. Got me reflecting on the founder of the stones, the long gone Brian Jones.

Ode to Brian Jones

Blonde hair. Devilish grin
Pink Cadillac dreams etched
Into a fan club questionnaire
Passion of the heart that pounds
Muddy Waters. Howling Wolf,
Before anybody knew -or cared.

Vox dobro. Silence under glass
The birthdate that we share
Pisces. I remember Brian Jones.
In the shadows of the museum
Under fading light that glimmers
On everyone but him.
