jammin' with joni


Les Irvin found this poem on the Internet. No last name is given for the author.

I want to live on Mulholland Drive
By Laurel Canyon Park
And write songs with Joni Mitchell
Light candles when it's dark
I want to drive the Ventura Highway
And turn south to Playa Del Rey
We'd have dinner in Santa Monica
And Joni would offer to pay.
(boom boom!) I had a dream about Joni Mitchell last night. We
were writing songs in Laurel Canyon. It was a gorgeous
dream. I made up the dinner in Santa Monica bit, though.
