chinatown jazz by scot young

sax man blows
slow note jazz
corner of kearny
& california
bubbles up like
a slo-gin fizz
in a hip pocket
flask
sun glasses
lowered
case open
catches loose change
from tourists
walking too fast
to feel
the jazzman’s
wail
that wraps the walls
of old st.mary’s

    Excellent scot!!

  2. I think my students, here in backwoods Germany, will read your poem tomorrow.🙂

  3. …As a good example for modern poetry, in case you wondered. Not bastardizing/infringring/whatever your work in any way.🙂

  4. That’s all any poet can hope for. Thanks for reading.
