Walking sixty second street

A neurotic stroll in  a  dangerous part of town.
For piano and Tenor Saxophone

Gone from me

She gets this way sometimes
Kind of sad, really

 I don't know what brings it on
 I want to help

When it's not too bad, she says there is
Nothing I can do

 Mostly, she is happy
She is really sweet

In public, she is always cheerful 
Vivacious, some say

Funny, thoughtful, caring 
You would never know

But it scares me
What do I do without her

I know it is too late.
If she was going to come it would have been by now
The flowers I brought are going limp
Turning brown
Yet I wait
As I have waited before
As I wait now for all those who
Hover In my dreams

sticks, twigs, bits of string

Safe in a fortress built from the skeletons of my meatless memories
Surrounded by the stories I have accumulated.
Protected by the escarpment of my wise investments.
Invisible to my enemies.

I no longer need shoes.
