ONE BLUE NOTE


when I was almost
nine months unborn
inside the belly
under the breast
under the maternity dress
inside the vaginal cave
doubled up womb deep
inside my daddy's wife
his steady laymate
     his check, his love life
     my mother
it was then I first knew
Jazz was a black classic music
that is created each time one blew true
