“Open Air, Jazz Drum” by Evan Carr


De-jazz, rearrested jam by Ornette Coleman-
Sound Grammer, like the cigarette burn,
from which open snare rolls to the smooth air rhyme,
loose wrists free to continuously fill,
lost in the off beat talent of improvisation
played above the refinery pollution
played above human limitation and social fence structure
from which turbulent hi-hat foottaps rhythmize,
the steady found to shape a backbone
phased spontaneous crashes, slant of irregularities
serene as sun rise, hyper-active pace
