Old Man

Old man’s
whiskey soaked
voice crackles
sparks explode
translucent color
drenched skies
Blues man
juke joint
a few steps
from the past
reflect back
dancing hands
held high
fingers snapping
deja vu
sweet drifting
Westminster shuffle
bump and grind
heart’s beat
keeping time
same swagger
tilt of his head
continues to mesmerize…
