Dispelling The Legend – Part I

By Lyons Bluesologist, David McIntyre

What was Robert Johnson really doing at the crossroads?

First, some background. This story is one I wrote many years ago for the Denver Blues & Bones Festival. They wanted a short piece on the blues and BBQ, and I had been thinking about the myth of the iconic bluesman Robert Johnson going down to the crossroads of Highways 49 and 61 in Clarkdale, Mississippi to sell his soul to the Devil; who in turn made him a great guitar player.

Poetry Corner - July 10, 2014

Insatiable
Alexa DiSalvo

Drunken drawings
scribbled on skin
tattoos
I section your body
Will I ever get enough?
So, with pen I ration smooth parts
and rougher ones
the calloused palm
I read like brail
even though I know
That story
by heart
When we’re apart
I shuffle barefoot and bones
malnourished
depraved
reprimanding my indecent hunger
Still, by night hour
mouth tongue fingers
devour...
Meticulous blueprint
blurs wet
ink stains and gloss
So lost
Even though I know
That map by heart.
