Welcome

by James Morehead

bass
rhythm calling in darkness
one guitar
deafening beat
stage explodes in light
drums ignite
a blur of spotlights
frenzied screams
a thousand voices
unite

song that paints a picture
eyes closed ears open
time forgotten
memories places
passing by
exhilarating speed
a deadly race
through mountain trails
at midnight

a glittering synthetic solo
dances
sight and sound compounded
pure energy harnessed
powered by melody and verse
the band takes the stage 

(inspired by a Simple Minds concert, circa 1985)
