People's Poetry

Jacqueline Jackson presents

cellopoem #1

I watched gerrall practicing
the back legs of her

folding chair
were neatly wearing

shoes perhaps
to even the seat more

likely to keep
the chair from moving

a cellist can’t
have a chair that moves

I always said
that unlike violinists a

cellist plays
as much with the seat

of her pants
as with her arms and fingers
