Sonnet: In Summa Summit

by John Kendall Hawkins

In memory of Chick Corea, recently released

Pretty, I've got a postcard picture mind

that finds windows inside a supermax

where lost time and space are a double bind --

the phenomenology of the sax

remembered from all-night pot-toked jazz fests,

Chick Corea's Return to Forever,

Mahavishnu Orchestra's playful rests,

the brain a cell block: never, ever.

Climbing Mount Never Rest, all sherpa sure

on the white disappearing trails ahead,

I move by instinct, my motives are pure,

samsara release, the Book of the Dead.

When time and space come to set my "soul" free

I'll melt in the music's infinity.
