Itchy Blues

For Tessa

when the Joplin tree falls down
there’s a secret hat to help you
every time a bell rings
& a tv spin-off is born
into the circumstance of this age
all a transmission from the mothership
fingers applied to frets
in characteristic uncynical songs
of the newer matriarchy
eventually you see it
passed when you want to please
& who you think you’ll find
the only thing that matters
just play the instrument
