The Jazz & Me

Bass-ing tempo rain stocatto
a pause and a two step
metronome click when tongue taps the
tuh tuh tuh top that quarter notes way of rising and falling
like flags waving inside that wind of his breath
simultaneously

I’m burning to pick up the pace
and just as much to slow this… down … so the melody can
wrap his 5 line staff and measures into mine
I’ve got a hunger rising
like lioness released from a cage of
expectations
the chains of hesitation stinging
til the bass clef decides to use
the right key
