A Poem For Reggie [Esbe pt 5]

Timing is everything.
A Poem For Reggie
by Charles L. Peters

His voice, a cello

deep / rich with message

his bars

a symphony conducted by love

of God, of family

of League

Your bond was blood


you bleed the tears of a brother

a pain the rubberneckers will never know

i mourn WITH you

not FOR you

i know what it means to be





i didn’t come to romanticize

or sugarcoat

this hurts

and there’s no way to get around it

For every blues there is a season

a seed and rain

a reason to grow

i look forward to seeing

your new wings

soaring through new skies

in search of new sounds

chords and rhymes

this is a new life you wear

a coat, warm

worn in his memory

for time is cold

his was now

ours is coming

love and laugh like this is your last

This is your story

and there’s no way to get around it

read it

over beats

let the speakers tell

of the blessed chapter

Dred Skott is

Austin burns tonight

i can smell the love in Georgia
