In a Jazz (call me jazz)

by Nii Parkes

call me JaZz
and I might be it
'cos I'm indefinable…
        I'm a skit
of untraceable origins.

Don't even ask
you know
or you don't!

        mark the improvisations
the explosion
of creation
I spurn.

I'm a deviation;
the dark in the dark
the unchained chained

I ride the winds
of my hazy past
in to the
of futures.

        All skits end.

JaZz is the sound
of my approach…
