John and John

i don’t know where

you are John;

i don’t know where

you are

John.

but i am listening to

Coltrane 

this morning

and i remember

the respect

that you had

for the masters.

while i, then,

was just a young

neophyte

positioning myself

as cool

before the message

and the magic

transformed me too.

and now i fill

my Sunday mornings

with music

and memories…

having reached so far

from that starting place

that put

us all

together;

compressed

by time

that dims

as well

as sharpens;

that

takes

as well

as gives–

under the auspices

of The One

who sees

and knows

it all.
