a kind of glory

a kind of glory

my folks remodeled an old farmhouse
a mile from the dairy when I was nine
my cousin paul architecture student
was a laborer every noon the workers
came down to eat dinner at our house
then sprawled on lawn floor couch eyes
shut for the rest of their break all but
paul he sat at my mother’s grand piano
played bach mozart chopin I lay under
the instrument listening it was heaven
tonight I attended an ettinger open house
bonnie artist beyond measure began to play
I crawled under her piano lay and listened
the dog and me it was heaven revisited
