I'll end this review with the end of Ryan's Poem on Velvet Underground that feels very fitting for the news of Lou's passing "In the heart of the night. My heart's just right."
Cox uses the “Sidewalk Ends” as a creative set up that lifts us through the window of his mind. We escape into his world walking, on beat, with the metronome clicking to Zeppelin, the Beatles and of course Jazz. It's like watching a mixologist craft a cocktail of time, art, and music that is called the "Circus Mind" . Lines like “Inspired to see ink Bleed,” make me jealous of both the literary technique and the raw, "gutty" honesty that permeate these pages.
"Rock 'n' roll is ridiculous. It's absurd. In the past, U2 was trying to duck that. Now we're wrapping our arms around it and giving it a great big kiss."
Great big kiss out the brilliant author that put this masterpiece together. :)
I am grateful for A Circus Mind. My next step is to put on the corresponding music, then further unpack this dense poetry. Many joyful hors to come.
A Circus Mind is the catalyst to such an experience. The book pulled me away from my comfortable understanding of Rock 'n' Roll bands, songs, and art, and spun it all on its head.
I've been taken to the Edge, and I don't want to leave.
