Jazz


time resembling cocaine jazz

i am sure
that i listened to a composition ten minutes and fifty four seconds long
and i`m so sorry
the music is over
but
i am also sure
that those ten minutes and fifty four seconds
lasted about few hours
i understood it not too long ago

(it was so long ago that i can`t remember i can remember but i can`t articulate my
thought just a glimpse of the three of us smoking near the back porch and somebody saying one year for three, pals
one for three)

i can`t get used to understanding this
seems neither can the cocaine jazzman
