American Character

 

Placing the hold,

he believed in perfection.

Sunset, half a cigarette,

a glass of wine,

it was nice.

We all took time to watch it go down,

kneeling like jazz,

sitting in the cold together.

That unspoken caring.

A missed opportunity

and a bass line that walked.

Honesty can wait.
