Three Measures for Miles

Jazz before noon
a sinful interlude–
a measure of Miles

In college I won a call-in radio trivia contest.  The answer was Dizzy Gillespie. The next week it was Charlie Parker.  The next, John Coltrane.  Then they asked me not to call anymore.  I was “Kind of Blue”.

Miles Davis playing
Introspective trumpet notes
A backbeat for jazz
Smile at improvisation
Melodies that fill the soul
