Jamez Sitings: Vinyl Lives (long i)


A dead man left his records to me.

His cat clawed them before I could receive.


There’s a photo

but I can’t find the usb cable.


Which is appropriate

because the analog recording of Al Jerreau,

The Crusaders,

and David Bowie

Are so much better

than the CD

or MP3 download.


God given ass

so much better

than Beyoncé.


Randy Crawford,

Quincy Jones,

and Minnie Riperton


so much better than anything

for which there are no comparisons.


I used to hate Jazz.


Hope the Katy Perry and Rihanna children

will wake up like I did.


If Miley Cyrus and Macklemore

have anything to do with it


you won’t.
