About Deeter

Music and poetry featuring some of the best musicians in metro Detroit.

We’ve been together for a thousand years.

Off and on.

Through wives and lovers,

Friends and others.

Husbands and enemies under covers.

You waited on the mountain top.

Seated under the pines watching the waves crash

While I frolicked with the sirens.

Knowing they are but a diversion.

 

Old man in the mirror

An old man watches me through my mirror.

It couldn’t be clearer,

His days are gone.

Like his old hippie song.

Old man staring.

Still wanting, still caring.

Like the mirror’s a door.

And his eyes just a whore

Lost in the past.

Where time moved too fast.

And men would fight for the right to

Want something more.
