Plugging In

PLUGGING IN

If you don’t get Miles
or if you don’t get The Dead
you miss out. Big style.
I won’t say anything more.
Let your ears take you walking.

Jazz Me Do

JAZZ ME DO

Memory splinters … Splinters linger on
Orphaned … Amputated … Alien
Earlier hellbent … Later bent
Like a banana
Like a tasty adventure
Up … Behind … To infinity and beyond

Like the neighbour who
Spotting the Buddha in the back garden asks
“What’s wit’ monk?”

Like a glance above wondering
In this boundless blossoming heaven
“What’s wit’ bird?”

What’s wit’ Bird?
Variations on a theme
Came a long long way to end up here
To land up here wondering
“What’s wit’ Miles
What’s wit’ all these miles an’ miles?”

As Jazz Is (16b)

AS JAZZ IS

Love you like
Miles, Coltrane, Jarrett
Who needs a
Safety net?
Life and death are one to me
With you beside me

What It Is

WHAT IT IS

……………………………………………………………For Miles

What it is
Whatever that might be

What it is
Is what I
veteran
of countless
dizzying nanoflights
make it

kaleidoscopic
Till I remake it

fractal
Till I remake it

a contraspiral hologram
Till I remake it

Into something else
Whatever that might be

Whatever

Whatever

What it is that it is
…..
