Ran across the movie Rush on late night tv
Had been 20 years or better since I saw it last
Only thing I remembered 
Was Gregg Allman rubbing two fingers across his face 
As he sat as a defendant in a courtroom 
He was letting the witness know
She might find herself at the end
Of a double barreled shotgun
If she testified

A day or two later, 
I hear the news
Gregg Allman has died
Something about his liver-
Hepatitis C, a transplant, cancer? 
My shoulders sink
My head falls forward
Emotions I can’t name
Splatter out of my body
His death
A shotgun blast
To my gut
