Jazz Recital

Feel the cymbals breathe
misty warmth into the
snow-streaked air outside,
your hands tapping
their tongues,
sizzling like
steam:
you have mastered the elements
of swinging feelings
and rumbling off-beat melodies.
Let the notes translate across
wooden surfaces
(from the Grand Piano
to your sticks and through the nerves
of your fingertips)
that tell tales of tantalization
by the Chess Boards in Washington Square
that whisper of eyes locked
and songs silently sung
through golden lips.
Listen to the words
and speechless signs
that are hidden between notes.
