short history of the saxophone


triage

suffering makes us special
o hear the darkies croon
from hills of alabama
to mountains of the moon


some seed of abraham
hebrew christian muslim
dream to grow up nazi
suffering makes us special

one genus one species
one specific genius
suffering makes us special
suffering makes us special

————————————————————————

simple honest speech
bright
simile awaked
flower symbol blooms
father mother rhythm
bodies earthy singer

thomas son of thomas
repots flower
tropes
simple honest speech
people forgot within
earthy rhythm bodies
…………………………………………………..

trivet


i have means
at my disposal moons
never used until the
tiger moans

bama mines
where i exhume grave omens
for whose
gamic magic there no names

dark mānēs
conjure my cryptic menus
the
son of a woman i have many

————————————————————

levantine

olive oil
to anoint
royal
and prophet

light
the shack
enlighten
the palace

………………………………………………………….

thomas mouths
smooth mythos
medusa
seemed amused
