Pink Champagne (for Digby Fairweather)

by
 Not blues in twelve
but there is joy
and pink champagne,

the maker’s music
trading eights
in syncopated synergy
from Dixieland to Rock ‘n’ Roll,

and here the cornet-master
leads in tones
a trumpet cannot blow.
The sidemen nod their harmonies, engrossed; their music coursing through an energy of swing; piano-player’s fingers dancing round the tune; a lover’s touch caressing melody from bass; and sax, deep throated tenor shouting counterpoint above the drums’ percussive ricochets.
Not blues in twelve, but upbeat late and shimmying like Sister Kate.
The cornet-master blows an emptiness away.
