PRE-STUDIO DAY MUSCLE SPASMS:
The head is a tight muscle filled with nothing but ‘wants’.
Well, if it’s going to be that kind’ve a start I’d better
get the kettle, sit out on the back step & listen
to the corn. Load the car with bags of pedals & guitars &
little black notebooks full of words I forgot. Switch off the
head behind the wheel & feel the road vibrate between my fingers.
When the muscle between the ear is tight theirs a storm on the
way. It’s time to open up the box of tools I’ve been given
for days like this, look in the mirror, smile & laugh.
Let go of all wants & preconceptions, all needs & cravings.
Let go of all frustrations & ‘no one understands me’s’.
Everything turns around, sitting on the back step with black tea,
handing the whole lot over – I don’t ‘need’ anything.
