Verse: Ellis

(Though this was inspired by the music of Don Ellis, it might not have happened without a conversation about him with @mergyeugnau, who encouraged me to be smitten with him)

It comes rolling in
the hot music
perfect, percolating
settling in the hips

bump it up
get it up
until it's rippling
towering sounds

until the bottom
falls out
too fierce
to follow

and I will
walk barefoot
upon the blue notes

like the moon
should only
be savored
when it's ripe.
