Before David Cassidy, There Was Davy Jones!

So sad to hear about the passing of Davy Jones.  I loved The Monkees!  Saturday mornings, ‘Hey, hey we’re The Monkees..’!  I would drive my parents crazy.  Davy was before David.  And like Marcia Brady, I was in the fan club!  How will you remember him?  Do you remember the Brady Bunch episode when Marcia asked him to the prom?  Check it out….

R.I.P. Davy

    to davy, my english hanuman


    when you were a simple monkey
    asked to deliver a single bud,
    you brought a field of asian amber flush.
    your unbridled devotion
    thrust you to monkey god.

    now, you divinely intervene
    and bring me messages of him.

    i find him in a soup kitchen
    baking apple bread in a
    t-shirt depicting two quarreling
    monkeys captioned,
    “double talk.”

    he loves me and focuses on
    monkees rerun marathons
    late into the night preserving
    our chaste, intimate love.
    tonight’s virgin viewing is
    in your honor
    and cinematic eulogy,

    humming your swanee river,
    i shiver with relief that
    my heart no longer attacks.

    thank you,
    for the anthem bouquets
    of my youth.
