NaPoWriMo 2013 (Rewinding to catch up) Day 5 ~ Sugar Man Found


The world erased you
while your lyrics lived on.

Written in vinyl grooves
songs burned their verses
into South African hearts.

Risen from rumor’s grave
you pour your music
into a thirsty world.

A humble carpenter shines
in a sky too often swathed in plastic.
Blessed are we that Sugar Man was found.

At Real Toads Marian challenged us to write about Rodriquez who was rumored to have committed suicide but was found very much alive in Detroit.
