CD – Where Do All The Young Ones Go To?

Where Do All The Young Ones Go To?
Poetry written and performed by John Graham-Pole
Music composed and performed by Cathy DeWitt

I lean in among the plastic tubes besetting you, my breath voluntary, yours urged.
Our cells mingle each with the other’s, spilling in a spindrift of air-water-ice between mouths.
You, going, dying, take my life to rest; I living, left, draw in your seed.

These poems pay homage to children I cared for as a children’s oncologist and hospice doctor. The poems are accompanied by original music by Cathy DeWitt, who has been a musician-in-residence in Arts in Medicine ( almost since I helped found it in 1990 at Shands Hospital, University of Florida.
