Randy Rhoads

Randy would have been 55 yesterday.  Awhile after he was killed I stuck a note up over my desk: RANDY RHOADS WAS 24. DO IT NOW.  I was wrong about his age (he was 25), and it hadn’t occurred to me that the note would frighten people. I tried to explain:  I wasn’t suicidal.  Been there, done that.  I put the note up to remind myself to stop wasting time, to work harder at the things I wanted to learn and accomplish. I don’t remember when I took it down.

Opening Act

'She finds her first certainty
at a garage sale. One latch is broken.
When she opens the case
crushed velvet echoes too many
cigarettes, cologne she almost
remembers. Maybe hers.'

Hope you'll stop by and read the rest of my poem Opening Act at Orion headless. My thanks to editor Sara Fitzpatrick Comito.
