Zoot Sims Crying


through the gruesome
plaster walls

there were bloody
screams earlier
of fuck you, asshole!
and I'll kill you bitch!

and something horrid
like screaming death, pounding
again and again

on the unyielding linoleum floor

but now there is only jagged
laughter, the clanging of glasses

and Zoot Sims his sax
crying Autumn Leaves


through the gruesome
plaster walls

so softly

it breaks my heart
