    Peach,

    Thank you for honoring a great entertainer.

    woke up not knowing
    why the sun don’t shine anymore
    today anyhow

    Amicus poeticae,

    Neal

    I remember seeing Lena Horne on the Ed Sullivan show when I was very young. She was unearthly beautiful, such a regal bearing, and that voice, a swinging jazzy dusky precision.

    She walked with beauty.
