August

*Tour dates for August are listed here.
And apropos nothing, here's a poem....


Emergency Stairwell


be aware
there will be
lovely fire extinguishers

vying
for your attention
at code-compliant intervals

keep
climbing
story after habitable

story
toward the last
door: prohibido pasar

if your heart
protests then yes
pause

at a landing
and sing the one
you began learning in April

never
will it sound
so beautiful as here

with no one listening
