50. New Orleans Jam

We did what every rock star
does in New Orleans after dark:
we scored some baggies
of brown and bindles of white

and we hit the bars
long into the night.
Sat in one sessions
with dudes who claimed

they taught Robert Johnson
Blind Lemon Jefferson
and Huddie Leadbelly
everything they knew

and who
were we
to argue
when we weren’t packing heat

Slash was in his element.
Steven played with brushes.
Duff bought rounds for everyone
Steven was MIA.

I just sat there taking it in
with two hot black chicks
It was the end of our
North American tour.

I celebrated by
them both
in the car park.
