Michele Reed
Poet
My daughter is a musician, a trombonist, and played with scholastic bands at Jazzfest and other festivals downtown. This poem is a distillation of those experiences: music in the open air, vendors selling food and drink—just a coming together of people in our city spaces.

And I think Syracuse is among a select group of cities, like Detroit and Montreal, that have successful jazz festivals. It’s something special that Syracuse has and that we ought to celebrate.

Flash of her trombone
Chill of ice cream on my tongue—
jazz at Clinton Square
