A Poem: One Sleepless Night After Another 

i get drunk on wine and
mumble metaphors and acid waves,
white roses and a
mausoleum for juvenile cliché.
see?
i’m already doing it,
stuttering through a long winded
meandering
anticlimatic
unintelligible
stumbling mumbling bumbling
idiot diatribe rant of unbelievably
undeniable
inexplicable
stupidity.
where else can i go with this?
nowhere?
shit,
i’m already
there.

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
