14 April: for Ragtag Daily Prompts

New Orleans Jazz in bar with an exposed lightbulb, musicians playing instruments. Same as featured image.

Music Ripe as Raspberries

A cigar, he says, is like narration,
it sets the scene, and he’s playing
his fiddle as if it’s a woman, fingers

an insatiable eternal hunger, and
the air’s upbeat with scratchy voices,
words fast and a finger-width apart,

and his teeth, the colour of walnut
and chrome, gnash on that cigar as
music pours out the door like fury.

  5. He’s no fiddler, but I had some Charlie Perker on the turntable while I read this fine work and your words and his alto complemented each other perfectly. Thanks
