Girls Of This Planet Are Like Jazz Musicians
While tapping spoons inside the emptied teacups,
they share stories from their extraterrestrial lives.
Nothing hush-hush with them.
They are also master improvisers.
Anything that happens on their corner
they embellish. They build upon it, change it
in their thoughts. With voices like cymbals
they often challenge one another.
Singing scat, someone insults a new moon
who lost everything and began wailing the blues.
