I made something for you.

It was an October Saturday in Salem of all places and we'd all just been to the fortune teller who told me of my responsibilities, which turns out were what I'd always expected them to be. I was in the exact middle of some hoopla over a book of poetry and some travels when a cocktail by the ocean seemed just what I needed.

Beside the fireplace, Lady looked at me and said, "What are you doing?" I hadn't known for a while at that point and my desires and purview had been for weeks keeping me up at night, so when she said, "Make music," all I could say was, "I will," and I did.
