David S. Pointer- A Poem

Other Voices

-Dedicated to Ray Manzarek
in Memoriam

At 9, I was like a
cadaver dog sniffing
at a lizard doorstop
when Jim Morrison
died then Manzarek
sang Tight Rope Ride
a scorching single and
it lifted me out of the
grief over losing a
rock star hero, now
as I listen to their post
Morrison albums at
Ray Manzerak’s death
I realize that a storm
damaged door with
beveled stain glass at
architectural salvage
is still a hell of a door

Bio: David S. Pointer is the author of “Oncoming Crime Facts,” The Psychobilly Princess,” and other poetry collections. Recently, he attended the Janet Kuypers/Scars Publications and C Ra McGuirt tag team poetry reading in Nashville and had a great time.
