“SUMER IS A-CUMIN IN – SING CUCKOO!”
Heat is here and sun shines bright
So we share air conditioned night
With songs from 1969/played by our 60s bearded DJ –
Howie Zowie was on KUT (before its division split infinity)
And knows his songs, and plays them Aum
for us to guess singers and composers
Of course it is for pointless points
but we all play along, as they are all familiars
recycled every decade for new formatted listeners
Pre-streaming, pre-downloading, we bought these songs
on vinyl as singles, Eps, LPs – before CDs came in, demanding consumption
But it is a hot night – a celebration of a decade of Green Man
so I present them with a talking doll in the image of Kinky Friedman
(who ran for Texas Governor in 2003 and scored my singular vote)
The night glows with conversations. The soundtrack is 1969
and it is only up to July before I fade away – back into Summer Solstice 2019.
