An inspired riff

On a classic


From the norm


By the masses


By the few

We congregate

In night clubs

To listen

To learn

To whistle

And clap

At great shows

Of passion

We who still

Love the form

We who love

All the crazy


Twists and turns

Of a jazz set

As one song

Rolls into another

With the fervor

Of a trumpet

Or the somber


Bellow of a sax

As it sings

A swan song

To convention

A tender tribute

To a lover

In the throws

Of the unknown

Still waiting

To be discovered


— B.
