Chicagoetry: Led Zeppelin At The Stadium, Easter Sunday, 1977

LED ZEPPELIN AT THE STADIUM, EASTER SUNDAY, 1977

Minick got grounded
For

Drinking. He sold me
His ticket

For twenty-dollars
In cash,

Walked up to me
In the hallway

At Our Lord
Of the Flies

All Boys Career
Academy

In
Naperville.

SOLD
AMERICAN!

We took
The Burlington-

Northern,
Then the Madison

Bus. "Everybody
Do

The
Madison!"

Same bus
On which

I was slipped
A packet

Of Angel
Dust (which

I ditched
Under the seat),

For giving this
Dude directions

For the Queen
Show. Anyhoo:

Our seats
Were below

The organ.
We had

Binochulars!
The air smelled

Of
Cherry.

Three-plus hours of brutal,
Unrepentant

Rock and
Roll.

Jimmy came out
In black Stormtrooper gear,

Breeches and
Jackboots, pilot's

Cap. Then:
The White

Zoso
Suit.

Half-hour acoustic
Set

In the
Middle,

Smoke-bombs,
Green laster

Pyramids.
The air

Smelled the air
Smelled

Of
Cherry.
