In Her Car

Jazz, blues,
The distinction blurs when I'm with her.
Armstrong, Gillespie play comfortably,
Voices calm,
Hers revealing quiet ambition,
Confidence.

Cool in her car,
AC breathing, cycling just above a whisper,
Constant.
Sharing my age, she seems much older,
Wiser,
One hand on the wheel, relaxed,
Eyes reflecting stars.
