|Chick Webb and Billy Strayhorn
moved inside our heads with sound.
They danced with shoes that hit around
invisible points where rhythm is born.Or they moved like rotund ladies.
A delayed bounce, swish, and sway.
rocked you into melody the way
grand moments entices empties.
Inside their world of pitch and tone,
So even if they stopped, stood still,
What’s up Family? Hope you are fully recovered from the Holidays and are ready to dance into the new year if not in spirit maybe in verse.
