We’re Making Music

Mezzo-piano.
Night-soft lullabies,
bed-time lyrics
We’re making
music
chambered instrument
soft, sexy, jazzy
deep mellow sounds of the clarinet
breathing harmony in me
Ellington’s sound
that penetrates and I
taste the notes
Making liquid music,
so intoxicating
That I drink music like sweet hot rum.

I want to be the instrument.
Something mellow,
a bass
Tickling rhythms in me.
Tracing the notes of my song.
Strumming deep sounds that reverberate,
Making repetitive music,
so stimulating
it engraves music like soul hieroglyphs.

I want to be the melody.
silky,
recording the sounds of
the song in me.
Hearing the notes
humming lyrical sounds that flow,
making love music,
so gratifying
That you sweat musical notes like rain drops.
As you play the melody
over
and over
again.
Night-soft lullabies,
bed-time lyrics
We’re making music
Your lyrics are within me
Reverberating,
Crescendo.
Fortissimo.
Decrescendo.
Pianissimo.
De capo al fine.
