the concert.


July, 2011

On a mahogany-lacquered

spinet

against the back wall

of an empty, rear lobby

at the college dormitory

in July

the large-shouldered blonde

with upturned tufts

of fading hair

plays the Revolutionary War Prelude

for her three-year old daughter

who sits

like a little boy

watching his father

gut a fish.
