Polish jazz


                kenny's pleasing voice fills
                his microphone nesting black hand
                and no glass shatters or breaks

                wasp andy at work renders
                arias  i thought about singing
                in opera  he says

                i take him home  sing kenny's songs
                he does and kenny's all  that's nice
                that's interesting  i like it

                on and on and nothing  i need
                i's dotted and t's crossed  kenny
                will you let andy record your songs?

                when i try to read Norwid and Les'mian
                in english i wish they would rise
                from their graves to repeat after kenny
                i can sing them myself
