A Single Saxaphone.

A Single Saxaphone.

A Poem by Gee
"

Drinking to forget

"
Plays blue, a single saxophone,
plays heartache and despair,
to hang heavy in the gauloises fog
above the broken gathered there.
Who sit alone with half drained glass
at tables laid for two,
just memories in the chair across,
of a love or loves once knew.
Cold comfort sought, cold comfort found
in stupors arms, alone,
serenaded by suicidal thoughts
and a single saxophone........

Wow! This has such melody! A lovely descriptive piece I almost felt I was in that 'gin joint' watching the 'billy no mates' at the table in the corner. The tempo of this is so good as are the words chosen to provoke images and the final line is sublime.

Thanks John, am chuffed with your review
Jazz in a Parisian bar. Yep! Just right once upon a time. The cabbage smell of Gauloise. Every body dressed in black. Everybody with funny little goatee's and no moustaches even the men.
Trauffaut sitting across from you chatting with Camus and eyeing up Simone De Beauvoir. I'm trying to catch the eye of Catherine Denuerve. Excellent stuff.
