Special All The Time

New Year’s Eve, I will kiss her at midnight
lips in transition – a reckoning
at the passing between two worlds
and so two times I will kiss her
though I’d be happy with any Wednesday
in May just as well.

the world is light

gypsies stomp around fires

dance atop the heads of devils


strange jazz

harmonies birth the netherworld

while fingers shape odd chords

Angst Rubato

Not enough gypsies around these days,
too many straights and narrows.

Riffs in overdrive, suck kick-drum air
atop the bass, leave a razor scar,
pop the weasel with a rim-shot snare;

all hail the power trio.
