               Bruce Fowler's Trombone Solo in the Movie Short Cuts 

 

 

makes me think of dolphins

leaping in a world
without tuna nets. Make it swing, Fowler knew--

 

never mind the drunks,

the jerks, the bloated corpse 

floating about the film. He had played with Woody Herman,

 

Frank Zappa and the Mothers, so closed his eyes and blew.

Salt water, liberation

warmly rippled through.
