OVER A CUP OF JAVA

Over a cup of java
listening to smooth jazz
of Kenny G
at Lincoln Center
still slap happy
in my memory
at the city’s Blue Note
then take cava cava,


Over a cup of java
two diplomats on occasion
are divided
then decide on invasion
and genocide’s persuasion,


Over a cup of coffee
a love affair
is broken up
then the coffee cup,


Over a cup off coffee
a critic asks me play solo
in Orpheus and Eurydice
as the Dance
of the Blessed Spirits
stay with me,


Again today
as in the nineties
the sax music
of Kenny G,
in “Breathless”
only smooth jazz
keeps my sanity.
