Cleopatra's Needle

I spy the bass player through the window, 
clumsily bumping down Broadway; 

he could have hidden a body in that over-
sized soft case, her head resting on his 

shoulder there at the end of her improbably 
long neck, whispering whatever it is she 

tells him each night
that puts him in the mood 
for jazz
