Sneezing Graffiti

Sidewalk cartwheels

East coast dreary November

Trombones singing on 3rd Street

crooning a morning lullaby

Early 19th century brick walls

tap dancing to rain drizzling

Sniffles and heartache

Numb fingertips dialing phones

Chit chat Reverberations

Chimes galore and sneezing graffiti

Dust from the faded stars fall

Art Tatum playing in a pool hall

Styling in a limousine black suit

Conversations slowly undressing

A voice soaked in a bottle of rum

speaks in the dead of the night

Strutting out of the door

with his golden plated cane

Humming to the sound of Al Jolson
