Jazz Club. by Ann Christine Tabaka



The lights dim
a horn wails
smoke and whiskey    fill the room

A voice like silk
    from some long past era
hearts mellow
    tears spill

Bodies sway
    fingers snap
Feet     s h u f f l e
across the floor

Hushed voice        conversations
    glasses clink
        toes tap

Drunk on
atmosphere
a slice of heaven    on a paper plate

High notes - low bows
    the jazzman walks off
        claps and whistles follow
            the lights rise
