Poems of the Week

Charles Robert Watts

by Dan Campion

“I don’t know what showbiz is and I’ve never watched MTV.”
Charlie Watts

He’s drumming now with Elvin Jones,
Max Roach, Art Blakey, Buddy Rich,
In jazz’s blue celestial zones,
And after that unruly hitch
With rock and roll, his grin serene
Syncs with this cool, long-playing scene.
