Christopher Barnes
The Jazz Queen’s Man’s Melanoma


You snarl hats-on melodies,
downpouring tight staves
for your Mr Subglottic Blister.

The grande passion
with athletic endurance.
You snarl hats-on melodies.

A tear of trembling suites.
Digit-hopping
for your Mr Subglottic Blister.

Themed with flurrying notes
tightening strings in his heart
you snarl hats-on melodies.

Nefarious depressions of ink
dribbled from a bamboo pen
for your Mr Subglottic Blister.

Swerving into ice-cold cadence
each glance across the piano.
You snarl hats-on melodies
for your Mr Subglottic Blister.
