When a song is good enough

I heard a story today
about Sam Roberts
and his music producer named Youth
who produced Paul McCartney
and Pink Floyd and others.

They say he sits
in a rocking chair
while they record music
and he makes oil paintings
of their songs.

Only when a song
is good enough
does he stop painting
and get out of his rocking chair
and dance
and that’s when they know
the song is done.

You can buy
his paintings
but I looked
and the ones I would want,
the unfinished ones,
are nowhere
to be found.
