Issa's Sunday Service, #14

For this week's Issa's Sunday Service, please turn your hymnals up to 11, that's the hard rock setting, and let it rip: it's Willie Dixon's classic You Can't Judge a Book By the Cover, as done by the criminally neglected band, Cactus. Some fine harp, scorching guitar, sweet bass, and a possess'd vocal.

Sometimes, a singer/songwriter just won't do.

This week's poem from the archive comes from Lilliput Review #26, November 1991. Other poems from #26 were featured in a recent post. This one is a long-time favorite.

Like A Rose
like a rose
had to leave us

but Marcia,
like a rose
still remains
Daniel J. McCaffrey

even the willow
is lonely...
rose of Sharon
translated by David G. Lanoue
