Life is a Stream of Choices

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
or Rachmaninov
