Bittersweet Jazz

and there are those special
but terribly seldom moments
when the heart bursts out
from within
a hidden melody of joy
on those days
when all the generosity of confusion
comes bouncing along

the song has a rhythm
to blend itself
into your frequency
like the intricate harmonics of jazz
there is some delightful
but manic pleasure
that assists each progression
and the music is stretched
until it is so close to breaking
without breaking
you hear it
knowing what it is
it’s as bitter-sweet
as life itself
