Lorie Miseck — Jazz (A Variation)

Poet name: Lorie Miseck Poem title: Jazz (A Variation) Poem: A minor key swings open the blue door of the heart. Brassed and unhinged sound unwinds. Sunset slides down the day’s spine. Slides down to the hour of smoke and wine, to artless sway of belonging. To the one, to the lonely, to the only to each of us held in evening’s aching arms. Listen to the division of chord and time. And time again. Listen. Listen, we take our night with one part wisdom and five parts song. And the darkness goes on for miles. End of poem.
