Coltrane and Baker

Coltrane wakes me
Baker soothes me
as it should be
as it must be
and why bother with the feelings about each
when underneath it all is rare experience
of experience

Masters giving us something
whether we take it
makes no difference
But that we did take it
made all the difference

Both exactly equal in their willingness to transmit
such difference
along the plane
like jets supersonic crisscross
there is a moment when they cross streams
that moment – singular
and then, bursting off beyond the speed of light
away and apart
and then again, rocketing towards a singularity
and again
rocketing apart

and I am the child, sitting against the earth
looking up at the dance.
