Hurricane Scars
(Tim Jackson/Eric Erdman)

The magnolia root buckled cobblestone
Is busted and wrinkled but the cars roll on
Wrought iron rusted fleur de lis
Still standing guard with a bent dignity

But this place is more than just some quilt
of hurricane scars and salvaged dreams
It's the reason to put it back together ….once the water recedes

Bottle cap taps echo down Conti Street
like a permanent metallic heartbeat
And guitar cases still gather change
Like an oyster man’s rake at the bottom of the Ponchatrain

This place is more than just some quilt
of hurricane scars and salvaged dreams
It's the reason to put it back together ….once the water recedes

And as sure as summer warms the Gulf of Mexico
Another storm will come and go
All that's lost , remembered in a second line
While those that are left, (dance and sing and love and live) until next time

But this place is more than just some quilt
of hurricane scars and salvaged dreams
It's the reason to put it back together ….once the water recedes
