Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


After raking hours of 24/7 toil this brain wants to spin with ole jazz’s request… 14th Road at 8 pm sprays lint upon feet much too slow for a jig of a night dance. Somehow, the breeze leaps to resurrect my wired head, as the gravel hiss of the sax purrs and pulsates, allowing some tangy vapor to restore the voice of passion and slice of lust in unbridled recklessness that thrusts upon nerve endings for an evening of choral notes bursting with alchemy. Dazzling to the beat in steel of moonlight, each velvet croon tastes a Coltrane groove as swaying hips bob to the pulse of sweet chaos. I hit the floor barefoot with raw notes climbing into my belly in the heat of brass pitch… after work, the smoky timbre rolls on and on as waxed pipe of rhythm and blues floats, much thirsty for a Friday’s raw dance. Giorgio Venetopoulos' Jazzy Contest by nette onclaud

    I love the raw dance that you describe, there is something special when you hear Jazz! You have told your poem here with such a spectacular charm my friend! I have been busy all day, from early morning to late afternoon, you know how it goes, child's doctors appointment your own doctors appointment, and coming to find out I have a thyroid problem, my daughter is fine though (thank goodness)! It could have been worse! I feel much better having read this poem! Thank you for writing this piece!!
