Jim


Jeff DeMark, Jack Vaughan, Jim Mazik,
August 1974, Boston.
Remember that hot August Sunday?
When we dragged you through the cemeteries in Lowell?

We were looking for Jack Kerouac's grave.
We almost gave up

But then the dove arose
And there you pointed
And there we found Jack.

Fly, spirit! Rise Again!
My restless homeboy!
Playin' the organ for my
96 Tears.
                           -Jack Vaughan, Nov 2014
