Slide in

Like tourists free-training
in the rhyme of their own city,
trying to grab the beat
and embrace the thrum
until you step just inside the notes
and meld
with the walking story,
crevices and twists
through floorboard and windows.

There the legs astretch, growing nearer
the pedal falling
atop this syncopated step
and the drag and tap, skim and break
as voices cut in
on top, top, top.

Another layer riffs
while wrists scout out
a trail of loose footholds.
Snapping into joint the tune
and its cacophony
slide craftily away.
