Fish Belly


fish belly they called him.
banged on that bass all day.
take after take.
tuning by ear, tapping his feet.
shut his mind off.

the real twist comes next.
asian women in silk, smiling and paying close attention.
stomach was white as a white crayola.
that's the reason for the fish belly name.
gotta have a blues name.
but it has to be given to you.

stackabones has a good blues name.
guitar player, that dude.
whip out a song.
three layers of thought.

like Jonah, defiant but still smart.
the wisdom and obedience fear inspires.
whatever it takes for grace man.

fish belly is a good blues name.
