Subway Band


The cover band in Times Square
that only plays Beatles songs
sounds broken

their songs lurch along
unsteady and strum heavy
rushing beats and pitchy vocals
just holding together

but the tunes still travel
memory maps of the early days
singing a hard days night
at a pub in Hamburg

because even ragged music
doesn’t feel sorry for itself.
