A Little Rachmaninoff Never Hurts
Some people may prefer landscapes
to scratch and sniff lottery tickets
or the sweet smell of diesel exhaust
to a pat of unsalted butter
Red wine? White?
Pepper on your salad?
I never knew I would have
so many choices in life
to paint it red or paint it blue
to sit silently in the dark or
maybe put on Keith Jarrett
yes, Koln Concerts, please
turn the volume down
to one notch from silent
Anything without voices, OK?
A little Rachmaninoff never hurts
