Listening To Aretha Franklin

LISTENING TO ARETHA FRANKLIN

.

I hear the drums and saxophone

The piano and guitar

Baby, baby, sweet baby . . .

And I am lifted out of my chair

Lifted up, I’ll tell you.

Higher and higher

It shakes me to the core

Reminds me that I still have a core.

.

Was life ever really that good?

Did we know the first time we heard these songs

(Riding in your dad’s convertible. The one he bought for you.)

Did we know then, there was nothing else like this

And never would be.
