Tina Turner (poem)

 

Tina

 

I love Tina Turner
Cher
Billy Joel
and Elton

I love Pink
Bon Jovi
Evanescence
and Brandi Carlile

Mary J Blige
Sure knows what she’s doing
give it to me
Lauryn Hill

Eric Clapton
is great
no one is greater than
the faith given to me
by Leonard Cohen

Marc Cohn
Walks me through Memphis
The Eagles helped me escape
California
and Madonna – well – I’m gay

George Michael, Prince,
Nothing compares to you
Melissa Ethridge
I climbed through your window

Janis, Joss, Joan
God is indeed, one of us
Lindsay and Stevie forever
as I took this love and I took it down

Sweet Caroline, Neil
You don’t bring me flowers no ‘mo
Barbra
but god woman, can you sing

Heaven is a juke joint
on Karaoke night
and I can’t wait to duet
with my favorites

What does love, really, got to do with it?

Everything.
