Jazzanatomy

EVERYTHING is jazz:
Snails, jails, rails, tails, males, females,
Snow-white cotton bales.

Knee-bone, thigh, hip-bone.
Jazz slips you percussion bone
Classified “unknown.”

Slick lizard rhythms,
Cigar-smoke tunes, straight-gin sky
Laced with double moons.

Second-chance rhythms,
Don’t-give-up riffs: jazz gets HIGH
Off can’ts, buts, and ifs.
