Free Spring Jazz in St. Augustine FL Joie de Vivre!
St. Augustine Plaza de La Constitución

Nights like these children are conceived
Choppy high school jazz waves through the weightening May air
Dripping days are lurking southward in the gulf
Confederate capped obelisks stand
Spanish, English and French sons of Florida staring from stone
Ponce
Russell
DuPont
Menendez—
CSA cannon stand guard honoring still
All will be shouted from the rooftops
A humble woman sits astride a large cargo tricycle
tapping a worn un-peddled shoe to the free jazz
God she’s Beautiful!
Smiling shiny black skin looks good
A nerdy kid blows his beat sax front-center
sweat rolls down his plump cheeks
This is his scorching dispensation in the spotlight
Carnegie Hall yields no such gems
