New Poetry by Terry Wheeler

last night in bangkok 

that thousand mile
stare of a soi cowboy

girl tables away
praying tonight she

will find something 
to smile about

the band’s heart of
gold a train wreck 

tall skinny white hair
german keeps stepping 

outside for a smoke
thai guy in hawaiian 

shirt eating peanuts 
been here centuries 

next band are killers
seen last year kick

off with white wedding 
drummer solid a seventy

year old legend skull 
capped faded clash 

t-shirt segue into
achy breaky heart

billie ray cyrus meets
motown soul where

creedence clearwater are
still called the golliwogs

- Terry Wheeler 2019
