A jazz musician

wonders back

to his days at the keyboard…

each note over practiced

until melody pure

and magic releases


A poet in laurels

wonders back

to his primers and notepads…

each word placed in order

until imagery calls

—and syntax digresses


(Villanova University: October, 2021)
