wesley willis, chicago poet

wesley was from
another plane of existence
a schizophrenic
that made
simple
strange songs
you couldn’t help
but smile during
and he would
headbutt his fans
so there was
nothing
not to love
about the earnest poet
telling stories
about urge overkill shows
or rock and roll mcdonalds
scream, dracula, scream
beguiling simplicity
hiding the genius
trapped behind
his madness

rock over london
rock on chicago
wesley willis, chicago’s secret poet
