The prompt for Day #17 is here.

To balance the valediction we wrote earlier in the month, we were invited to write a poem of greeting, a hello poem.  This one took the form of a recap of some of my musical experiences in the past several months.



“Hello to the Music(al)”

Hello, Dolly!  It was so nice to finally see you

Hello, little girl! So many paths worth exploring.
Just one would be so boring!
Look at that red cape, plump flesh, and naïveté,
and Bettelheim and my course content splayed across the stage. 

Hello, hello, this is Romeo,
calling from a jackpot telephone,
the line a fresh blast from long ago,
and hello to no fear and no souvenirs.

Hello, darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again (every night).
A filled-up Central Park was never so silent
with people hearing (but were they listening?).

But, child grown and dream gone,
my comfortable numbness is hurting.
