21ST CENTURY POEM by Jay Passer

Django played with 2 fingers

escaped the nazis

by riverboat

Made a book

out of cold creeks and chocolate

Reached out across time

before Hollywood

head shots


smog-infused sorbet


dreamless pandemics

Django was a Gypsy

I am a Jew

with arthritis

Make pasta with chocolate

My broke guitar

strumming Love Me Do

Django the infinite Beatle

Made a book

out of 

toilet paper

instructions complete
