Cecil Taylor (1929-2018)

elegiac stone plant
one lobe grass shingle
spark weights quick
bandillero first later
perhaps cloth lighted
back over sil effulgent
flower aroar matador
effortless Veronica
quilt pleated notion stops
rhythm sights ground
cartilege sweat
standing pace apart
nimble feet door ajar

–from “The Musician,” Arsenal: Surrealist Subversion 3 (Spring 1976)
