And it’s just a gorgeous thing when a real-life conversation in a taxi can turn into a work of art that moves other souls who listen.

“If we’re lucky, and we listen, the song is gonna tell ya what it wants.” I’ve said this about the way I write poetry. It’s important to listen.

And a bonus, just because I can’t stop listening to them today:
