BUDDHIST TAKES, 5
Kids from the local arts high school
play Chick Corea’s Spain by the river
under a tent people go crazy
over mangy dogs auctioned off
the river bereft of boats compared
to last, unauctioned dogs squeal
ramped up into the Uhaul. Guitar
solo first, then trumpet, vibes.
Beyond measure. A sparrow dips extra long
in the drinking trough, a spider bites
my calf--milk it for all it’s worth. Why not?
Vibes first, then guitar, no trumpet:
We don’t get around much anymore.
Some folks dig jazz, some dig bones.
