''When I hear you / play ''My Foolish Heart'' / I am clouded // by more than Scott / La Faro's charred bass / resting a moment // against a Yonkers wall / in its transit / from fire // like a shadow / a grace note /exploding in // flashbacks of Lou / insanely driving / ''Man we're late!'' // his long instrument / straining the car / interior, a canvas // swan my arm held and / fingered, refingered / steel strings as // of the human neck / the neck of music // this music of the life / I left was mine, years / touching the keyboard // of terrible parties / and snow / snow --from ''To the Pianist Bill Evans'' by Bill Zavatsky.
