3. The Bailey Trio

We had a little vocal group going
my kid sis Amy
my kid brother Stuart
and me.

We were The Bailey Trio
three-cute-as-hell kids;
innocent, driven by nothing
but a love of music.

It was gospel mainly,
sung proud and loud at recitals
through gaps in our gums
Damn man. It fills me up

just thinking about it.
I kinda wish it could be
that way now:
no lawyers

no contracts
no bullshit
no rules.
Just purity – and love.
