anecdote #285 - Joni

can't claim intimate connection.
Or even knowing who.

Choir taught The Circle Game
to follow the shape of her voice,

a hand-me-down corset of sound.
without having heard her

she's carried in my solitude.

any culture stripped anonymous,
keeps potency.

She does a version of Cool Water w/ Willie Nelson that's just...freaking great. And I love her live record Shadows and Light. Its not for me to say, but all the greats place her right at the top.
