Kind of Blue

Each note a Hippocratic oath
to a hypothetical melody

alive

medicine to heal

time signatures capture
every precious phrase
the right
and

the rapture

music
as it was intended
rhythm full of response
cradle to grave

nothing like ever before

forged with honesty
sealed with faith
ever more

rise to the surface
inspired
exact
forgiving as required

jazz

Kind of Blue
resonates
sixty years
give or take

Miles

bending air
breathing life

little more needs to be said
but it must

the times we live
the love we make
what matters most

half notes full of soul
simply

complicated

pure expression

passion greater than romance
more finite than death

1959

before this
cool was only a temperature
