Hepcats


over at Maxi’s


next door to the Flamingo,


friday nite cool;


Coltrane on his Blue Train,


Philly Joe’s drums hustlin’


for space and time


tryin’ to fill a vacuum


that Coltrane never leaves;


piercing gliding whetted


Coltrane’s sax cuttin’ the joint

cuttin’ the nite into ribbons


of color,strands of splendor


intoxicating innuendo for


Hepcats their mint juleps


colder hemp harder


earthier like primordial notation


drivin’ that Blue Train along


outbound bound beyond


all talk all senses


over at Maxi’s


next door to the Flamingo


friday nite cool.

Hepcats
over at Maxi’s
next door to the Flamingo,
friday nite cool;
Coltrane on his Blue Train,
Philly Joe’s drums hustlin’
for space and time
tryin’ to fill a vacuum
that Coltrane never leaves;
piercing gliding whetted
Coltrane’s sax cuttin’ the joint
& cuttin’ the nite into ribbons
of color,strands of splendor
intoxicating innuendo for
Hepcats their mint juleps
colder hemp harder
dirtier like primordial notation
drivin’ that Blue Train along
outbound bound beyond
all talk all senses
over at Maxi’s
next door to the Flamingo
friday nite cool.

Night Listener ( re-booted 2 February 2018 )

Listening to faltering surreal broadcasts

serenading another Summer equinox,

the composition’s title eludes him,

Miles;haunting contemplative succinct

flags down thoughts mimicking melancholy,

Gil Goggins’ circumspect piano

embedded in the spent day’s residue

receding like the listener’s reverie

broken by random sniper-shots of glass,

endemic tension flowing,

burst-veined onto midnight alleys

of this midnight City,

frantic frazzled red ‘n’ blue

taking some more cold meat

away to the coroner’s slab,

away from midnight streets

haunted by ” Yesterdays”,

that title hunted down and

captured by a desire to

have words for that spell

cast on a long ago night

in a faraway City where

another night-listener

heard the night

with its surreal,faltering..
