Robert Allen Beckvall – a jazz poem

shh sh  shhhh  crack,    “hhmmmm”  he hums while he waltzes

shh shhh   shhhh   shhhhhhh  shh  crack   he waltzes

shhh   sh shhhhh shh  crack, pop  oh two at a time

I watched the man in the white suit, night after night, dance the soft shoe,  then tap dance on the cockroaches, under the light by the pawn shop

sh  shhh  shhhh  sh, crack    “hhhmmmmmm”    He seems so happy.
