Dusty Springfield

Determined to meet up
with Dusty
the cool soul singer
wanting to hear
“Only wanting to be
with you”
and reading in the Mirror
on Sunday
she loved pet cats
like her own
twelve year old Nicholas
and helped
by the Pet Sop Boys
in her career
I brought my kittens
my Salt and Pepper
to Dusty backstage
hidden in my sax case
knowing she knew
Jimi Hendrix
and my cool uncle
the impresario
who had a connection
with both singers
and lived on air planes
and took me everywhere
introduced me to Dusty
and I got a fine autograph
and picture with her.
