On July 17, 2014, Eric Garner, accused of a minor infraction of the law, died at the hands of the New York Police Department on a Staten Island street. Tody, July 23, 2014, I wrote and recorded this song about the incident. Video here.
Took part in a poetry event recently and read this song, one that I posted here at MeFiMu back in 2007. Video at YouTube or Vimeo.
In a departure for me, this tune features no percussion, synths, jaw harps, scrap metal or hand held mini-vibrators, but is simply accompanied by... an acoustic guitar. Radical, huh? Anyway, as you might guess from the title, the tune is a kind of meditation on New York City. Hope you enjoy.
