for the Day7th
1930: the tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins is born in New York.
His head clears the clouds
of an atmosphere of themes
that hums about him.
Tall lips compel a rubbery
or smoky note out, rebounding
on the surroundings network of tones.
A colossal strolls deliberately
taken in difficult air in order
to disclose a new opening.
