Proximity to the Star

I was in the back
far from choir and leader
on guitar

Enjoying the music

the vibe from the crowd

singing along

Near the end
a white-haired
with a serious face
told me

You should join
the choir
you’ve got a nice voice

I laughed.

She was serious.

I mean it
I know the leader
beside the violinist
Karen is her name
talk to her.

I smiled.

I know her. I sleep with her each night.

She laughed.

Oh you’re the husband!

That’s what I am.
