Rare as an Ivory Bill
The voodoo kept me out of North Carolina.
Midnight, I sailed the Cache River on the back of a dragonfly,
The ivory bill flew off in a wink... a New York minute...
Water spirits found me anyway...
Washing up on a sandy riverbank,
I boiled my tea of Suwannee tannin,
Threw myself in the Choctawhatchee at dawn
When I heard the Kant, Kant
in dropped D
Honored the spell,
inhaling lotus blossoms
and fine legged wine
on the rocking river.
