She said there would be balladeers
singing in classic 5-part embroidery.
Eddie K of the mountain lakes,
smooth bay-rum for the ears, a teardrop-step
in tailored pants, sharkskin maybe mohair,
the voice of the slow-grind, a fill-light
upon sweeping profile, cheeks so
smooth, astringent sharply braced,
invigorating love in every arpeggio

Chagall 2017
