Truffaut here

Paradise found in a Tokyo Bar

Paradise found at Truffaut

Truffaut here
means movies, booze, a
quiet respite, candlelight
and real jazz though not
a “jazz” bar.

Here, a “jazz bar” is
one tender
per male patron; they
offer mostly talk and peanuts,
no music.

Thunder skies
wake adults: children
do not hear, nor frequent bars
this side of downtown.
Truffaut rules.

Musicians start or
end nights here,
the truly hip find
nooks to plan clandestine trysts,
or gossip.

Time dissolves
under piano riffs,
sax wailing,
conducive to heart
calls, so couples come.

A sip of
Baileys on the rocks, better
here: life fades,
deep meditation
for us lost drunk souls.
