“Raise high” red & orange sun umbrellas
blow out the blue balloon ballroom
ceiling for the doff dance

“Pick up order here!
…olives, pepperochini!
pale ale from Hop House!”

Ten knuckle blues
cats breaking the rules
notes bent brittle thin cast iron

fat slides & tempting trombones Pop
go the contradictions contraindications
spinning bombos bouncing in the street.
