“Music Hath Charms”
“They say music hath charms to soothe the savage breast (not beast as so many misquote). There is some sound out there that we can all feel good about. We’re heading to a concert. You name the group. I’ll lead with saying write about the experience of the first group you had seen live.”

Forest Hills Stadium
but this is no
tennis match. She
rocks the stands
with her band,
Big Brother & The
Holding Company. Feet
stomping, red feather
boa ’round her neck,
she tosses that long,
wild hair back, and belts
out some hard rock blues.
Everyone stands, wanting
her to go on and on,
that queen of bluesy-rock,
Janis Joplin.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
