Frisking the Whiskers

on the street two beat
jump jazz swings the door open
scat cats call us in

    clickin your fingers to the rhythm… nice side slide in a dark alley, leading us to brighter lights?

  4. Jazz and haiku go together so well, this is great.

    Just came across your Frisking the Whiskers — Jazz Haiku site. I see it’s a couple of years old, but is this an ongoing project or was a paper anthology eventually produced?

    I’m a well-established Canadian poet with 26 books and 10 chapbooks behind me, including a couple of lyric/narrative full-length collections of jazz poetry on Miles Davis and his music (one from Thistledown Press; the other from Ekstasis Editions), and two chapbooks — one on Miles’music (Tempus Fugit) and the other a chapbook of jazz haiku called Jazz Pops for Jack (both with Lauerl Reed Books).

    Could send aliong some jazz haiku if you are still collecting them.

    Cheers,

    Richard Stevenson
