Blue Rondo

brubeck

heaven
is in
church today
listening
to cool
brubeck play
blowing
all the
wingéd cats
away
sending them tumbling and jumbling at Yahweh’s feet
dig me
dead man
like a spade
march me
hep cat
in parade
tripped notes
falling
pounded in
cascade
Jehovah sends Joan Miró out with your drink and a cool deck of straights
