the time between

they’re off to the side, talking between sets,
when bobby goes on stage impromptu
with body and soul a cappella, the chatter
abates, you hear clark and sanchez high
from stepping out in the alley, and paula
stops and looks and keeps her eyes on him
until he ends, then strolls up and kisses him
on the lips, bobby holding her, kissing,
wanting to go, to keep on, but one set’s  left,
the talk resumes, glasses clinking, laughter
