kind of blue…

spent the night listenin’ to Miles…
Freddy the Freeloader…Flamenco Sketches…
blowin’ through a tinny speaker as the fat man sweats…body soaked in humidity stew…just listenin’…just listenin’…

thinkin’ ’bout this an’ that..
the one who got away in the middle of the night when love didn’t stand a chance…peace was outta’ the question…an’ you were far far away with some cat named Brown who came to town thinkin’ he was gonna’ get hitched…funny how things work out that way…

swiggin’ a soda…listenin’ to Miles…
So What…Solitaire…
real uneasy in my easy-chair…emerald eyes cast spells…magic lasts a lifetime…take it from me…you were never aware of what you were layin’ down…an’ i don’t stand a ghost of a chance…

walkin’ on Dewald Street at 2 in the mornin’…couple of shots to the left…couple of shots to the right…a speedin’ car…cop cruisers cruizin’…an’ i’m listenin to Miles as i watch my steps through alleys…back streets…headin’ over to old Broadway where a dime gets ya’ a bag an’ a fin lands some hag…you never know what the night brings…

whispers…porch lights on…Christmas decorations on lawns in mid July…too late… too early….real lazy or amazingly ambitious…take your pick…it don’t matter…some acts are best left alone…did’ya hear the one ’bout the dog who got away…

listenin’ to Miles…
Bye Bye Black Bird…bye-bye…
last time i saw you was in a dream…a beautiful dream…we was wrapped ’round each other…fast fast asleep…what i wouldn’t do for that…what i wouldn’t do…

kind of blue…
