    The music played in rapid succession
    Where beats delayed their nectar
    The café swayed in zing terms of funky jazz session
    Can you catch the drum beats
    Making the keyboard swing in melodic chant

    That woman been dancing to this
    Calling all her suitors to join in the chords of her glee
    She been hearing the horns and that Sax
    Makes her just want to let go and breathe her lament
    Can you dig the blues down yonder
    For the Mississippi holds secrets in ancestoral terms

    The band they played on the essence of mint leaves
    Where there is room for the birthing of new things
    The notes now on levels of expression rhymes
    Can I get a witness of this dialect sensation
    Where their bodies make love to instruments diverse
    Gibson chords reflect electric slang of Monk
    While the band expand into another space
    Jazz can make you thirsty for things yet to come
    Requiring this intermission

    You have a knack for packing so much feeling into each phrase. I enjoyed this poetic romp.
