Time on Water by Robert Gibbons

Kind of Blue

Roar of stones inside sea waves clashing with the silent snowfall of the last day of January. She puts Miles on while I'm in the shower getting ready for work. So What, a bridge, based on 16 measures of one scale, 8 of another & 8 of the first, connecting the intimacy of morning in the house, & rush hour tonight. At the end of the Orange Line, three handsome African faces ancient Benin sculptors would have done justice for. Listen, bronze & brass & stones, her voice, the racket of the subway, a cough, a cry, a Spanish accent, the wind off the ocean, bass, drums, & Bill Evans on piano.
