no sell out
no sell out (for miles davis)

tonal colors thicker
than molasses;
than orville faubus' skull.
sitars, tablas,
fender rhodes
dancing like the boxers
he loved.

trumpet running up your back
like love's fingers.

pensive sometimes,
or ignoring the stop signs
between bass clarinet
darker than delta shadows
and funky english
