Here's a song that puzzled the bejesus out of many a now aged acid head upon it's initial release. Rejoyce, penned by Grace Slick and performed by Jefferson Airplane on their fine After Bathing at Baxter's disc, is this week's contribution to the legacy of LitRock.
For trivia buffs and Joyce aficionados, ReJoyce was also the title of an excellent introduction to the work of James Joyce by Anthony Burgess.
If you didn't get a chance (or want to give it another glorious spin), check out last week's Summertime in England by Van Morrison.
This week's poem comes from issue #2 of Lilliput Review, sometime in 1989. Enjoy.
D. C. Dance Steps
Entering the crowded floor,
You are pulled left
And I am lured right
To travel on my own.
While you seek poetry
Body rocking in the rhythm of meter
I smile and sway, deep in the heart
PS. If anyone has suggestions for future songs in the LitRock category, particularly those dealing with poems/poets, just drop it in the comment section or send me off an email. I've got a nice list of titles so far, but group-think would be great for this little project.
