Street Musician




Someone tells her to seek the key of A

around and around the evening stays lit

it's a wonder there are tunes, most of space is silent

she seesaws her bow, her chin dips

the theater-goers catch her last chords

think of supper, marriage, of being alone

  1. You have set the mood well and gotten inside the musician's mind with your words here! Nice.

  2. ...she seesaws her bow, her chin dips.... so few words, showing so much depth. Excellent read.

  7. Brian,

    Parts of this were with me for a while, but it didn't gel until what you point out -- the marriage/alone juxtaposition.

  8. Making yߋur own beats with Ѕonic - Producer is
    easy and exciting. Who сan tell the insuгmountable opportunitiеs it
    сould offеr. These also come with priсe tagѕ in the strɑtօsphere, and mind-boggling instructions.
