The great musician and composer Lester Young
(nicknamed Prez by Billie Holiday)
who lived a lush life and died at 49, too his-last-name
was one of the hippest human beings of the 20th century.
Prez was smooth of tone and tongue,
and coined the use of the word ‘bread’ for money
and the phrase “repeater pencil”
to describe the act of repeating one’s own past ideas.
I’ve been a repeater pencil for weeks now as I fill these social media with back-dated content.
Prez always said he didn’t want to be a repeater pencil.
