#101 "bluehawk?

for wallace lester

late one night
in the early "60s
between sets
at the village vanguard 

charles mingus
was holding forth
on the current struggle
for black liberation 

& making a lot of noise
when monk walked up,
stood there & listened,
then shook his head 

& said to charlie,
"goddamn, mingus,
I never knew
you was black!"
