Snow is falling it’s cold enough to settle at minus 1 on the mercury but it doesn’t stop the brass band on the corner playing classic carols for all to enjoy I find myself singing along to The Holly and The Ivy and it feels like Christmas in my soul.
Thanks for reading the poem for day 7 of the Advent Calendar of Poems.
I’m lost in the chaos
of the jazz playing
through my headphones
mainlining wordless wisdom
straight to my brain
the addiction took over me
in a past existence
Coltrane, Davis and The Dave Brubeck Quartet
imprinted my bloodstream
let my feet and fingers tap
and head sway
whether frenzied or not
I don't want to be found just yet
the sound of the sax and trumpets
is the sound of my soul
is the sound of romantic chaos.
Thanks for taking the time to read my poem. I hope you enjoyed it. Feel free to leave any comments you may have below.
