Couch Session #29: J. Irvin DallyWe laid hazy in a fog from overstretched Friday nights,
so much restless sleep, so many throbbing lights.
One of us wrecked from staying out too late dancing,
The other one ill from food poisoning advancing.
We were wowed by Jordan's voice on that Saturday afternoon,
but it wasn't until later that we'd wholeheartedly swoon.
Once our distractions had been lifted, our heads back on straight,
we fully realized how lucky we were to have a performer so great.
Plucking his guitar with fingers long and thin,
time just seemed to suspend as soon as he'd begin.
With a face that tells stories you can trust all the way down,
and a voice with a soothing-yet-still-intense sound,
his songs make you stand in silence, numbingly filled with awe,
the apartment floor creaking between choruses raw.
In the end, we really don't have much to say,
since we're still reeling from how he played that day,
so while the headaches have cleared, and light's no longer a pain,
we're still as entranced by Brown Sugar, Sleep and Cocaine.
Well, if we meant the actual things, we'd be high as a kite,
floating away in the freezing Manhattan night,
but instead, we'll stay inside, wamed by the reflection of our laptops' glow,
and let J. Irvin Dally's tunes take you just where you need to go:
