Praso: a gray little spot on the map of the pink Italian Alps;
St. Peter’s bells warn your day and your night,
And the green of the pines overwhelm the rainbow.
Praso: you walk in company of your steps’ sound,
Hugged by the night;
While Venus, as your sharp sister, glances at you.
Praso: Do not get fooled by the rivers that sing in the summer;
Maria feels like a big rat in a prison
Free to go, but she doesn’t know where, when and why.
After being in Boston four years, I tracked down a friend and artist from early days in central Kentucky. CD Collins who’s lived in Somerville since the mid-1980s is credited as one of the progenitors of the spoken-word with music in the New England area. She's an award winning poet and performer. Getting re-acquainted was much like doing a documentary interview so I decided to write it up for the first publication of OpenMedia Boston. Collins has just issued a new cd. “Carousel Lounge chronicles events that occur at night, undercover, unobserved.
