auuuugh how i know now
i can feel it in my bones

i come from the blues
i come from america

i am improvisation
i am conversation
i am collaboration
i am instigation, observation, class and station

i have senses purely for the enjoyment of life
i have ears to consume sound
i have eyes to bring in beauty
i have hands to touch, to touch, to touch
i have a mouth for a million reasons
to sing, to taste, to kiss, to scream, to whisper, to cry

jazz is sensuality
jazz is self-discovery
jazz is ecstatic bodies
jazz is restless minds

and i am going to become it.
