Gary Metheny

Intimate Conversation
after Richard Jones
 
We speak
in low voices
 
leaning in
to each other–
 
my breath
touching you
 
softly
 
on your cheek,
 
your breath
touching me.
 
 
 
Just Music
 
I usually prefer songs
without lyrics–
 
just music,
 
extending her hand
without a word,
 
inviting me to dance.
