A Man Walked Out

Poster of the Beethoven sonatas evening (segment), Koloman Moser

The door at the exact time
He walked in through the same door

Some of the atoms of each body
Without any jolt or bounce

Sunlight? Of course
& music
A violin rising
From below a drum

In the playground dust
A small child shooting marbles
Looked up to speak
Not knowing the man’s name
He didn’t say a single word
