4. BLACK TROMBONE

Black Trombone
Sweet, single toned
The trombone
It is beautiful
Spinning around
My record player
Taking away
My troubles

Black Trombone
Sweet, single toned
An extension
Of the night
God please forgive
The humming
Temptress
In my bed

Black Trombone
Monotone
She’s giving herself away
But only halfway
Naked and shivering
She’s talking nonsense
Poisoning me
Bothering me

Black Trombone
Monotone
There it is, the autumn
Of my life
No one can
Surprise me anymore
I give up
It’s over
