Book by its cover

joplin

She looks like a girl but when she opens her mouth
she sounds like a roller derby queen
complete with helmet and knee pads
the music of the 70’s surrounding her

He looks like a middle-aged man but when he talks
he’s like a used car salesman
trying to get me to take an old caddy
for a spin-and see its worth

My words come fast and furious in black and white
but I think I am a rock and roll star
hair flying around my head in a haze
of Janis Joplin mid-sixties blues
