Old Singers


Old Singers 


Old singers lounge in grooves

on vinyl    swoon 

to the high notes    hold back their rasp


They imagine birds

dancing on sheet music    dream

in downbeat and gin


follow the smoke fog    sway

in cool clubs    romantic blue

they remember 


They nod to the horns    smooth their

hips and tap time    while sugar

ivories smile
