I wrote this about a month and a half ago on a receipt while watching Kurt Rosenwinkel and Mark Turner in Philly (w/ Aaron Parks - piano; Joe Martin - bass; Rodney Green - drums).
no wasting time
these are striking times
time to shred or shed? on this...
cascading pillowcases filled with red
so they are hard
being cooked with fingers
across the board
burning passion over ivories
but blown through with billows of air
take firm hold and bende with your knees
up, down, up, down, up
Every time you change octaves, I have to retune.
