Jazz Dreams

a new york rain

a hamilton rain
brick red

a montreal rain
french catholic

pouring down the windy corridors
of suit and tie construction buildings

not natural grey
rain grey

(jazz pellets bouncing streaks off windows
down onto the sidewalks)

i’m spiderman
a cartoon figure leaping from number to number

i’m on 5th ave

i’m on king

i’m spinning a web over mary down cathedral

i am joining new york to
grey – red brick – catholic….

(a montreal travelogue
missing steel rafters over the harbour)

pour down you rain grey
the living room radio dreams my madness into the bedroom

am a trombone

am the bass

am spiderman….
