inspects its brim

    John, well done_! A subway station comes to my mind:

    subway songs
    this violin's sound...
    a token
    _M

    So glad you made it Johnny! A tight, light and dark little poem.

    Lemme know when and where your next gig is and I'll come support the cause.

    jingle of change
    the street musician
    tips his porkpie

    touching the brim
    of the fedora
    brings clarity of vision

    passing clouds
    a blind musician
    strums the blues

    the blind man doffs his fedora

    old black fedora
    drooping on my head -
    sweet memories.
