Approbations

307
—after Fred Hersch’s …Departed


                                                             And angels go, too,
thrusting
dusty figures
                               wearing wings
of a dragonfly’s dissipation
                                                                                           into leaving
across the eyes
a footed step of echoing constant,
trembling hitherto
                                              fear
not resembling
                                            a moment’s
counteractive arrogance.


308
—after Eric Reed’s Angels in the Snow


Proliferation
                                            of powdered haze (tired, atremble, worrisome),
                                                                            say a
butterfly’s fundamental scamper
                tiptoe dangling
within tangled hands of air’s keeping silent,
                                                             landing
                               juxtaposed
with highlighted variations
of east west travels,
annual
                               return a winter’s frozen memory
hanging
onto the wishing notion
a watcher
hears and resides
                                            atop errant motions
of travelling

                sightless.


309
—after Keith Jarrett Trio’s The River


                Develops paradigm of voices
interacting solace
(purdah, pandemic, serrated faculty)
                                            denouncing
the trash of shadows

erupting after absence:                scent
scurries                twirling mosaic
function
                stepping into repeated domes of inverted
color, blurred though beautiful, a death of continuous occasions.


310
—after Karel Boehlee Trio’s The Shadow of Your Smile


Recedes the function of angry seclusion, wrinkle
facets of facial montage
sifting beyond hand held
reinvention, curling duration of
malleable ability, shortened.
I watch the eclipse of white teeth
burn upon torch of touching lips
vertically ascertaining humor’s
empirical foundation. As with
many shadows misunderstood,
the shadow of your smile
locates itself mislead,
following the physicality of veracity
into spoken brokenness, lost
inside dimensions of whole
excogitation.


311
—after Enrico Pieranunzi Trio’s All the Things You Are


Of thread
                my bare following
                                                             clothes
in the collective mayhem of
unrecognizable dilemma. Of
                                                                            fragrance
forgotten by the ersatz
nostalgia
                               delving into memory’s erratic ensembles,
my obtaining your moving reflection
counters adjectives of yesterday’s silence
holding the tongue still of my wandering
soliloquy.


312
—after Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Quintet’s Serene


Somatic delineation. Earth
of the mind’s spinning opine, traffic
consultation
                               fallible meander
copacetic end on an exit’s latest
dichotomous design. Blue, no. Cliché
construct visits the anecdotic personas
early among a mauve tribute
sky inward balance, static sustenance
courier of the sacred correspondence.
