Love's Accompaniment

This heart drums out a shallow beat,
deficient rhythms thin as bones,
until these evenings we may meet
and unrehearsed we improvise
piano whispers, songful sighs,
then feelings play their saxophones
and glances slow dance through the tune
which draws us close while eyelids croon
with silent lyrics we two dream
in this free jazz of love supreme.
