"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

ALL VIOLINS

ALL  VIOLINS       BROKEN

They  showed you  to me   today

You looked about 70   chic   salt & pepper       & dashing

You circled around me as though you

would  reach out   I knew they  orchestrated

this because I won’t be here in 46 yrs. to see

you    in your   dapper glory

 

I knew too that  I was standing between       dimensions   

And maybe your 70 yr. old self is looking at me

thinking   how can this be?

 

It’s like when I saw my father approaching me

down in the subway   an old sick man shuffling along     in his slippers
