Grace Notes For The North Star

I keep dreaming about Paul. He played sax and made puppets
while the baseball game blasted out of his 16 inch RCA black and white
portable with the adjustable indoor "Rabbit Ears" for enhanced reception.
Paul's puppets sang the blues. They danced on tables. His puppets were
Angels. Some even had wings. The seasoned blues man he sculpted before
cancer took the tools right out of paul's hands,sang for us after the puppet
maker "tuned up" the strings on the old man's guitar. Today as I woke I heard
Paul's blues man bouncing grace-notes off the north star.
