Night Outside the Theater II
By Bryan Ball
Huawawaaaaa wa huawawaaaa wa wawa wa wawa wawa huawawwwaaa huawwaa
Is the sax’s wailing moan that perfectly sets the tone,
of this crowded sleepless street, where these two agreed to meet.
Swaying like the slowly drifting moon, to the sax’s crooning tune
underneath the city’s streetlights, the two share your spotlight.
Sax player, wrapped in cigarette curtains, playing a sound that they determine
as they walk the Great Wide Way, this is the song that they will play
together until tomorrow noon. Tonight, as they drift under the listless moon.
Huawawaaaa wa Huawahuawaaaa wawa wawa huawaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
