    lady sings the blues
    melancholy rhapsody
    cabaret of one

    In the blues-
    her darkness blue dress
    so much light

    a glimmer
    of blue sequins

    early morning
    bundled beach walker --
    in search of blue skies

    front row seat-
    the heart shape
    of her calf.

    show's over; into the cab --
    quiet memory
    as she sang, your golden hair.

    seamy love song
    another cigar glows
    in the front row


    the diva’s gown--
    generous curves limned
    by perspiration

    once wailing sax
    leans in the shadowy corner --
    midnight silence
