Erren Kelly: “Coffeehouse Poem #442”

Coffeehouse Poem #442

a tall girl walks in her
long legs
are all the sunshine
i need on a grey
her legs are as long
as the jazz solos
i listen to on
old school
she would be a perfect
jazz tune
one that takes it time
and never rushes
so that the listener
can appreciate the
the groove, as red
as her hair
