Something borrowed, with a touch of something blue

A little extract from Larry Levis’ After the Blue Note Closes.

Suddenly a downpour, a late

Summer storm. I thought of you, alone or

Not alone in that distant city,

And at that hour when the punk musicians’ bars,

And the carpeted bars,

With their well-coiffed, careful clienteles,

Are closing—

Those strangers pairing off at last & each desiring

What little mercy the other can

Afford.

  1. So well conveyed sense of wistfulness and separation.
