Midwest Trumpet Player of Union Blvd. (Friday Night Poetry Corner #189)

iZotope
Mixing jazz music

Good evening everyone and welcome to the continuing, fantastic Friday Night Poetry Corner.  Today I will feature one of my poems and as usual, it’s an old one.  Somewhat regrettably, I do not write any new poetry that much, maybe 2-3 times a year if that.  I use to put pen to paper a lot but drifted away from that discipline.

A rather fun discipline.

 

Anyway, I hope you guys…

 

Wait I didn’t finish telling you why I don’t write as much poetry anymore??

Nevermind, just read this joint and thanks again for stopping by.

 

Midwest Trumpet Player of Union Blvd.

 

 

He amazed the great song player

of northeast St. Louis,

The chance of love

stage base emotions

sock base trumpet melodies

and soft voices emotes…

my inner,

the winner

of mind blogging surface gestures,

engaged the would-be audience

of my favor,

so I savour

the man within

I grin,

the love of changing faces,

I love

wait– I mean, I crave

your attention

in crisp romance

of boiling heat

fire dances advances

this was my favorite tune

my famous song,

my essence of pure anything

surpass my everything

even my jealous side,

humble to your smile.

death to easy listening (Friday Night Poetry Corner #179)

Jazz Photograph – Jazz In The Dark by Dave Coleman

 

 

Good evening everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week, I will admit is one of the best poems I read this year and that is saying a lot from the many wonderful works I showcased. Check out Musehick’s work called “death to easy listening” and see for yourself.

punk jazz poetry

death to easy listening
i want music that requires effort
complicated polyrhythmic or atonal
skipping along the edge of coherence
substance versus appearance
the interplay and interference

i want african beats, and cuban tweaks
and gamelan turns and repeats
i want to hear the swirl
that captures the chaotic beauty of the world
i do not want background listening

maybe dream of nashville
maybe new orleans
maybe detroit
all these beautiful scenes
where the music in the landscape
makes it onto the mixtape
makes it onto the dubplate
all the stems mixed
the beauty isn’t broken; doesn’t need to be fixed
