Roland, this is a poem about BJ Wilson I wrote in the Spring using words from Procol Harum titles, sort of in response to your BJ interview with Kenny White. I just got it out partly in response to Richard Beck and others' flurry on BJ ....
broken outside the gates
gone small in box again
Repent nothing juicy tale
If you can use it for BtP that would be great, but it might cause head-scratching because it's so fragmented and downbeat: it may not be appropriate for a site that celebrates life? I guess the interview put me in mind of other casualties of changing times. He was a talented one.
Thanks, Ross. BtP feels sure we can trust anyone who loved and admired BJ to listen to it in the spirit in which it was made.
