Under the bridge on my way to freedom I dropped all my bags for awhile.
I left them behind, stepped into the sunlight, as an old man gave me a smile.
I’m sure he assumed that his warmth went unnoticed, but it kept me going for days.
It’s not just a phase. I must wear down this cage.
Children hold hands on the streets of the city, I watch from the top of my stoop.
Their T-shirts are matching, a few of ‘em laughing, and I must admit that it’s cute.
Two minutes go by and another group passes, men in identical suits.
We travel in groups. Like uniformed troops.
I know you need me to give you some comfort, but I never could reassure.
I can celebrate or commiserate, but please don’t ask me for more.
It’s not that I don’t want you to feel better, but I can’t be your support.
I’ve tried building forts, but I come up too short....

Sign up is at 8:30 sharp. Numbers will be chosen at 8ww:45pm and we will begin promptly at 9pm.
Each performer gets two songs or 8 minutes.
I will open every show with two of my own songs.
All styles are welcome. We are aiming to create a supportive environment for musicians of all ages to get their first experiences on stage!...

I have teamed up with Kristen Reilly to form a new duo fronted band called The Carolina Honeys. We are currently writing songs, shaping our sound, and preparing to record! Here’s a shot from our recent photo shoot at Brooklyn Rod & Gun Club in Williamsburg.
