Chicago Serenade

Evening
a desolate street

A car with its windows tightly rolled up
stops for the red lights

Suddenly
in the rear-view mirror
a dark figure
looming

Sir, buy...

The ashen driver
steps in fright on the pedal
and rushes through the red lights
like a rabbit running for its life

... buy some flowers
today’s Valentine’s Day

(1985, Chicago)

May Day

They had a claim, logical,
That some meanly labelled as farcical,
The anarchists in thousands were struggling for an 8-hour day,
Not caring for rise in pay.

Chicago was trembling the most,
People of all colours got prepared to earn the right at any cost,
No smoke curled up from the tall chimneys of the factories,
The streets turned into human-seas.

Five rebels in 1887 smilingly sacrificed their precious breath,
1904 marked the workers' victory bringing their wanted wreath.

  171.     

American Style

Violet trees waiting for jazz
Count Basie shelters the urban rose
Dreams rest like the wind making love
Sweet serotonin in pagoda gowns
When you whisper I get hard
Kenny Burrell marvelous like stars
Moves like a good drummer
Darling your hands make music
Billie Holiday never played with dolls
I write your name on abstract jungles
Cities where Duke Ellington played
Stand up Bass talks like Chicago
Scales from India and Africa
Chromatic silk blue as New Orleans
Blue Note
Existential sax
Golden trumpet, Miles in France
There are no mistakes
Democracy on a piano
American Style and Gumbo

PHOTOGRAPHER DEAN HICKSTEIN

In the department store on Nicollet Mall,

a photographer photographed me from Chicago.

He came back before snowy and blurry,

MN Twins were winning the World Series.

Photographs were taken when I was young,

it was great I had a lot of fun.

Now the roll of film almost became lost,

another photographer found it before it was tossed.

If anything I still have photos to show I was young and a glow.
