For Yoko Miwa

She knocked me out for a year

took me to the tombs

of Egypt, where she embalmed

the brains of the first tribe

of jazz... with kindest care

she put them in their jars

labeled calligraphically

with multi-colored letters

indicating Duke and 'Trane

in a quicksand of sadness they reign,

under her sash of silk

in all her sweet milk,

nursing it all in another lullaby

for another day of jazz

in her mandarin mind.
