"Mamma Bought Me A Trumpet" coming soon!

If I could see Norah Jonesís sunrise Iíd truly give the world,
A saxophone playing in the background and a live performance courtesy Ella Fitzgerald,
Iíve been thinking about writing a smooth groove, for those of you that donít know what I mean-
Iím trying to tell you Iím still in love with Poetry, just go and ask Al Green,
The thought of playing the trumpet my mamma bought me makes me feel a certain way,
Like I can make my acting debut in Look Whose Coming To Dinner as Sidney Poitier.
No matter the day or time, free verse or rhyme,
My toes began to become numb as I caress a pen against my thumb

Enchanting review. I would be interested to see what comes next. Unfortunately, right now I am financially embarrassed to the max. I don't know when things will get better. Maybe in about 9 or 10 months, but probably not before then. Thanks for asking though and best wishes.
