Catch Some Wide Eye

Exhibition


my finger traces
the ornate designs
on my husband’s arm
blue, green, orange, gold
the plumage of some wild bird
exotic-
curling around his elbow
ending just above his wrist
like a shirtsleeve.
oh, that i could bare my music
the way he wears his colors!
i think of my piano
and blush with shame.
what would my children say?
