Stevie Nicks by Ann Robinson

Stevie Nicks


Under the strobes
guitar hands, neon blonde.

She sings like a forty-year-old child,
wears a witch’s cape.

Tosses back her jukebox tenor
to the audience.

We stone up,
all the freaks in the back row, breathless.

Where was I going before
I heard her music?

Back when
the world was hunger,
and we only took.
