In Memory of A Man of Knowledge (Who Drove a London Cab and Loved His Jazz)

by Aidan Andrew Dun

cab 3

for Deborah and Rory

Deeply he knew
the mazes of life
the ways of jazz
gone now to
last destination
in the City of God
leaving behind
the lost.

Where humming
himself a standard
he looks out still
for their waving
in cities of despair
from crowded pavements
to take home safely
another day.
