‘True Professionals’ by Myesha Jenkins

It is impossible to tell

From these wild looking brothers

These men walk into work

With full knowledge

And accomplishment

Take the bandstand

Like an old familiar lover

Sounding grown

In trills and runs

With bowing

They have the tendency

Of freedom

Jump the structure

Add a note


Laugh dancing

To a thousand beats

The bass challenges the piano

Throws it to the drummer

Trombone and trumpet

Show teeth
