Our trip to Krakow was not highly organized.
So, I gave thanks to the gods of serendipity
when we came upon an evening concert
of Klezmer music.
The performance seemed very good
even though I cannot tell a good musician
from a bad one.
Maybe the locals do not know it
but the music in the hall
is like string from a ball of yarn
batted around by a kitten
from Wawel Castle to
St. Mary’s Basilica.
Their feet get tangled in it,
thinking of their ordinary life
that may not be ordinary again
