The Maestro’s Baton

The maestro’s baton,
a featherless feather duster,
leads a band that does not follow.
Sparklers and whiz bangs
lose their luster,
in the dead of day.

JimmythePeach (3 Poems)

Jimmy the Peach, or Peach for short, is a published poet, author, songwriter, musician, engineer, and producer. As a punk in and around San Francisco in the late 70s and early 80s, he was part of the seminal movement that, much like the Beat Poets of the 40s and 50s, rebelled against social conformity and conventional musical traditions. In his fifth year writing and publishing HaikuToday, Peach lives with his wife, Patti, two greyhounds, one parakeet, and the ghost of a hind-walking cat, in NewMain, Virginia.
