The Flutist

Bill Siegel By

for Elyse Wood

she listens to the bass strings moan

rolls her cold silver flute

across one cheek

while the bassist's fingers sweat tears

on the polished wood

as she plays

the saxman's shadow crouches

hunchbacked on the wall

when she finishes

she stands straight as the flute

resting along her arm

and quivers

with the strings of the bass.
