Miles Away

Miles Davis wouldn’t
have liked me
I’m painfully white
Musically unable to
remotely grasp his
genius mind and
violent when pushed
Like him
But what a story I
would have had!
Gather round
Let me tell you about
the night I had a fight
with Miles
No, Miles Davis wouldn’t
have liked me


Gods are larghissimo
Adante moderato too
Alpha and omega
to souls most desperate
and Sketches of Spain
when Miles Davis played it


Symphony and melody
heavens and below
to play the days sweetly
mark well the tempo
taking careful heed to
where you place your notes
