into the fastened yesterday

the headaches are for men in white socks
ties keep hard heads full   of knots
                     won’t quite forget what’s best forgot
their ballad blues have sudden stops

                                   these mellow horns of ragged age
give pause enough to turn the page
in  contraband denoting change
                          head to head     the solstice same

tenor hands   slow  and sweet
                           walter staring at his feet
counting minutes of the day
swing your step  to make your way

into the fastened yesterday
