Island Song: For Sammy Kaawai


By jamesaguiar - Posted on 22 January 2010

there is a place i go,
seldom but sincerely;
music draws me there:
i need no ticket-
transport is ethereal-
erupting volcanically
from a song in slack key.
i find this place;
as i sit alone
on an omnipresent isle-
floating-
everywhere,
nowhere,
locked in my heart...
suddenly:
the quaking vibrato,
the torrential falsetto,
happy pain!
i'm home.
