Roadie Poet: More


Got a girl.
Name’s Maureen.
Guys call her Mo.
Friends call her Reenie. Or Reen.

I call her More.

Crew don’t get hotels,
Just a shower at the site.
I’m on Bus 1.
She’s on 7.
Nothing’s private on a bus.

Time’s hard to come by.
She’s busy around the show.
That’s my rest.

I tried to help her out some.
Band showed me the door.
Told me to be a good crew boy
And stop sniffing around their girls.

So me and More
We skipped dinner
Snuck off
Found a spot behind some empty cases.

She’s a great kisser.

Hambone saved me dinner.
But I want More.

Yep, another melding of the Weekend Wordsmith and the Poetry Train. I don’t know about you guys, but I dig the Roadie Poet. And as you can clearly tell, he’s now got a definitive gender.

    Only if the Tour Manager gets to watch and have me, too. BR/BR/And yes, Trev wears off on you after awhile. It’s both liberating and not pretty, all at the same time.

    Sorry, it’s morning and I’m caffeine deprived. I keep thinking of S’Mores and I’m kicking myself for not being able to come up with some pithy remark. (Later, I’ll just find the whole concept stupid, I’m sure)

    Hey, Susan. I told you yesterday this was my favourite Roadie Poet gig yet, but I guess my comment was deemed offensive. Sorry?

  27. Susan Helene Gottfried

    I think it was a Blogger burp, Camille, ’cause when I checked my comments, it was still awaiting moderation. But I remember telling it to publish!BR/BR/Weird.

    Stomping her feet on the bleachers, Marcia cried out, “More! More Roadie Poet!” Then she realized she was also calling out Iher/I name…when it was only Roadie she wanted.
