The guys in the band wear big shoes.
It helps them, they say, play the blues,
While folks in the street
Just jive to the beat—
They must have a rollicking muse!

Keening

three sighs to sundown
and the full pink moon’s blooming—
cemetery blues
the keening of doves at dusk
and on the cusp of morning

a blues trombonist
mounting the rainbow staircase
for his midnight gig—
smoke from an open doorway
anticipating the notes
