Common Tonalities
(10/19/2021)


Brother Bollocks
takes
an extended
driving vacation
with his
father

neither
a big talker
the radio
provides
the most
vocalizing

unfortunately
Dad doesn’t
appreciate
the finer attributes
of modern
metal music

so Brother Bollocks
compromises

finds
a satellite station
playing the hits
of the sixties

from Bebop

to Rock

music
that they both
shared
during that
time

one then
in his
thirties

the other
just
a child

remembering
the songs
in quite
different contexts

but still
spurred
to a bit
of missing
conversation

or at least
to a collective
keeping
of time
