Walking down Park Avenue 
Listening to Charlie Hunter Quartet
Doing the Talkin’ Blues
I’m counting ear buds,
Counting my lucky stars

It’s friday the 13th Mr Mumps
And I miss your guiding voice.

Oscar Peterson bebopping,

Confrontation, then
Onto the Cumbia Essentials
Que Nadie Sepa Mi Sufrir

I’ve donned my ranchera hat
In the big apple
Cuz you can’t take the Cali out of me.
Scott you were right; the hootenanny goes on and on
From state to state
By 4:30
I’ll need a Jamesons
Raising it in honor of a poet,
For my Park Avenue swing.

Brazzaville at 14th street,
Brother L.A. soothes
My tenderfoot bop.

I keep moving
And Marc Cary takes me by the hand
With Attachment.

Dammit I can hike barefoot in the Santa Monica mountains
Without a scratch
But do the NYC all reet
And I gets blisters on my feet.

Destination in view,
At Bleeker
My adventure ends and
Ian Drury is hitting me with his rhythm stick.

Good Morning Scott,
Wherever ye may be
Thanks for
The Manhattan streets with me.
