New York Regular Guy Hat, Just Like John Lennon
He's got a New York regular guy hat
just like those lesser-seen photographs of John Lennon
when Yoko finally civilized him
but he still wanted to seem on the level.
He's got a beard too, but it's obvious he's had it since before 2013
when every other guy started growing beards
because every other guy had one.
He looks like a bass-player,
one you see on PBS in hotel rooms in San Francisco
and the jetlag is killing you,
concerts recorded in TV studios in 1979
where you kind of know Bill Evans hasn't long left.
He's got a New York regular guy hat.
He drops it going to the desk,
Michael Rosen books under his arm.
I take-off on horseback across the sierra,
catch him just before the creek
becomes the Rio Grande, reunite him with his hat.
I don't like to see a man and his hat parted.
John Lennon and his first born boy spent too long going through that shit
