LARRY JAFFE
Castaways

I listen to your search for ancestral music the rhythms that make your heart dance. The sound removes the scar tissue from my forehead rules of transcendence etched into the soul. This is not a guitar that your spirit plays it is the bones of your childhood singing for freedom. And I come to you on these shabby knees awaiting your charm.

LARRY JAFFE
Elegy for Lonely Horn Players

I am the loneliest horn in the neighborhood my heart wails through my keys I can barely express my allegiance my eyes see through the blast of sound there is wisdom in this song
