Dedicated to a decident memory in New Orleans. Villanelle
The professor played on the piano
as the painted ladies danced
down in Storyville, Louisiana.

A small slice of Americana
the Crescent City financed,
the professor played on the piano

They came from as far as Savanah,
to watch happily entranced,
down in Storyville, Louisiana.

Jazz musicians from Havana
blew softly. The madam pranced.
The professor played on the piano.

Like attendants at a seaside cabana
we watched as beauties advanced,
down in Storyville, Louisiana.

A sweet and softly, dulciana;
in the rear view mirror glanced.
The professor played on the piano,
down in Storyville, Louisiana.
