Austin Texas Tower Shooting – 1966 and Now.


Poem in memory of the shooting

Austin City Limits

Nightlights along the river

Heat rises from the pavement

Strumming guitars

Beats over microphones

Tower in the background

Try not to remember

Bullets raining down

The summer of ‘66

Just missed me

Didn’t miss another

Mother to be

Steel penetrated belly

Taking that life yet unborn

Try to forget

Austin City Limits.
