Jennifer Lagier- A Poem & Photo

Ramblin’ Bill
He’s long in the tooth
but still in the game.
Contemplates surfers
and passing walkers
from a bench
above Carmel Beach.
Draws inspiration
from the ocean these days,
not groupies, cocaine.
Says this place makes him
want to play his guitar
and create.
Sets up a studio where he
records original songs.
Is working on a book
detailing eighteen months
touring with Elvis,
his Memphis Mafia years.
Calls this bluff his office.
Dispenses country wisdom,
morning gossip, demo CDs.
Comes back year after year
as a gift to himself.
