"Eight Line Poem" (1971)

My friend Dallas Brodie and co-promoter Artie Devlin are hosting the 2nd Annual David Bowie Tribute at the Biltmore next week. For this event I will perform an a cappella version of "Eight Line Poem" from my favourite Bowie album -- Hunky Dory (1971).

Tactful cactus by your window
Surveys the prairie of your room
Mobile spins to its collision
Clara puts her head between her paws
Open shops down the west side
Will all the cacti find a home
But the key to the city
Is in the sun that pins the branches to the sky oh, oh
