On the night of the day when Marin Luther King was murdered

  

And some of the bigger cities consequentally were on fire

  

Johnny Carson brought on an impassioned Diana Ross to help calm things,

  

tears streaming down her face, she sublimely sang

  

from West Side Story   “There’s a place for us”

  

 

  

This week I haven’t thought of this

  

when i sing it quietly to myself

  

I dream, still, about her
