Another Grace Note

Here we are again.

You gave up Paganini
for Django Reinhardt.

The years are written
in a boom-chick la pompe

Strummed at the corners
of our eyes.

We talk of friends
here and gone, of moments

Long ago, a kiss
and a day on a green lawn.

Talk as a kind of jazz manouche.
Gypsy reharmonization, a song

With a minor-key feeling.
