blunted blade blues

nice notes 2

golden swan-dive tune’s
deep doldrums barking croon
swaggers hot with swing,

spinning spicy sax notes
round chinked-fang 
chain bride ring,

sung-up sun bared backs,
rolling our blacks out in
midnight mares,

next, gong-toll loopholes
sage smoke our grudges in
gloomy rose blush dusk swarm,

mopping sweat, tucking quarrels
under roach snug corners
of blotter acid-jazzy

blunting pinch of
soured cherry cello in
