Midnight & Dimmed Lights

Midnight & dimmed lights

Soft jazz playin’

Clear liquid drips off the good China

A slosh & a white lace slip

You lick your fingers

& toast the new beginning of hope

Been Listening To Chet Baker All Day

Been listening to Chet Baker all day

A friend said it’d make me a better person

I’m closing my eyes while the sounds take over

I’m imagining a lost era

~

Every man knowing how to wear a suit

Every lady in a tailored dress

~

Mad Men fiction – but with a tangible feel

~

A stiff drink to calm my modern nerves

& realize I yearn for well dressed people

~

With manners.
