Poem from:

The Gross & Fine Geography: New & Selected Poems by Stephen Bett

More Details

Pat Metheny

Bett, Stephen

Another Mr. Popularity
(& for good reason)

Profoundly sad &
joyous & sweet
(ad infinitum…)

Nice & easy

Easy is nice, too

Warm summer evenings
windows rolled down
Meth (lite) cranked up

Ride us to the town
called love
(it’s in the pink)

No tip, you know
better than that

The pleasure was always
both of ours

And don’t wait outside,
we’ll be up late
listening to it all
bleach out
white silence

Highly produced, yes
(Mr. Popularity, &
for good reason)
