Play Me                                   2/24/06

Hey fool, play me.
Let my shiny, brassy,
Curvaceous body
Seduce you.
Play me and
Soar to the sky
In the spirit of
Trane, Bird,
And the Prez.
Press your lips
Around my mouth.
Blow a devil may
Care riff,
And let your
Fingers walk
Up and down
My silky keys.
Wail and sing,
Scream and shout.
Play me with
All your might
Before you lay me
In that velvet bed.
