Honeymoon Suite

if you were naked
and i
were to breathe life
the folds of our


you stare up at me?

hair wild on the pillow –
blue, glowing out the
playing something, a
a trombone,
a skiff or
a skaff of midnight
where the musicians believe
day has not ended


respect that others may be out there
sleeping soundly.

if you were naked
and the sheets were
and the room was all we
could afford,
with a table
a small fridge
and a
hot plate

would you still find me desirable?

you do
and you have


i will provide you with more
and better life,
and the
music of our jazz…….

will be perfect
