Jazzed Up NYC - My Thanksgiving Poem

November 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The skyline of the city frames smooth toe-tapping jazz

With blue notes high and low in syncopated beat

The Freedom Tower’s solo is a complex rhythmic call

For all surrounding scrapers to respond in varied styles.

But a cruise ship passes by like a strident brassy blast

And eclipses big band’s swing and its riffing bebop sounds

Till disappearing past, the river’s ceaseless current flow

Muffles the final coda as jazz notes melt away.
