"Riding with Miles and Dave" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on February 19, 2014

"Riding with Miles and Dave"

In hot pursuit of the 22

Woozy from the morning paying me it's dews

Get it?

Got it

Hoppin up on to the 22 I pay my way

I stumble but keep my balance as I pick my seat

First I check to see if it's wet

Dry, all clear, so I sit down for my session

I proceed to get my fix

My friend Dave has now entered the mix

I take five, chewing on a "Take Five", listening to "Take Five"

I'm a good listener, so shit I'll take ten

Headed downtown, you can call me "Mr. Broadway"

As we ride a "Strange Meadow Lark" lands on my shoulder

Taking flight, away, way into my brain

A pacifier with wings to ease my pain


The next stop is a few Miles away

I say "So What" as I draw "Sketches of Spain"

Sipping on some "Bitches Brew", I've acquired a taste

Jazz sounds delicious, wrapping me up in it's sweet embrace

I ride smiling

Inside; Dave and Miles continue to swim into my canal and down into my belly

Warming me up as good friends always do

I arrive at my stop, Miles and I get "Right Off"

It's a good thing because I've got a half hour to kill

I've got a date with "Audrey", we are watching the sun set together

      Hey Robert, I'm a keys player but the trumpet was always a favorite of mine, the tone speaks to me. Glad you enjoyed this.

      Miles Davis....I tell you, Eric, brought me back to my trumpet and jazz days; thanks! As always, a poignant and emotional piece.
