Thursday Poem

Asbury Park

Bruce Springsteen
standing on the boardwalk
outside Convention Hall
while his wife's band rehearsed inside.

Three, four people chatting with him,
I'd left my camera on a table
at the space age Howard Johnson's
that looks like a flying saucer

while I checked out Bruce's 'vette
& some other classic cars
successful musicians
can afford to own.

"How ya doing, Bruce?"
"Hey, Buddy, howya doing?"
He was never a regular guy
but he has it down in theory.
