a little poetry

 

Flute and Guitar Duo*

 

jazz-art240x240_web

Plumbing secrets of sound

with a love of clarity not linear

but indecent, more like embraces —

her gold flute, his gentle wrist

birth maelstroms,

that chord frankly in the body,

this note captive of her curls,

with always the applause of death

— shivers among sirens —

lending urgency to breath and hand,

their passion frees the air

like a stormy voyage, mi amor,

and brings to the surface

every ship ever wrecked

on the dancing waves.
