Drive By

Living on a dirt road has its advantages, but road dust isn't one of them. Revised 27 May 2021.


Drive By


The winds faraway, not a whisper

doing its job, the leaves all steady

and firm, the air like a trumpet

for putting in a good word about

the doldrums. Good days and bad,

like jazz and a blackbird in the key

of C, are as honest as saying who

knows what to expect. Summertime,

big time playing on Jazz 24 and not

a word about what’s to come next.


But then a car drives by, the road

dust obliterating every one of my senses

and I take it all back, what I’ve said

about the leaves, good days and bad,

jazz in the air and the key of C.
