This morning is right for the depths of
Bach Cello Suite No. 5 in C Minor, BMV 1011: I. Prelude
Played by
Erling Blöndal Bengtsson
Quiet few drops of rain without consequence
Almost no traffic and until the bus arrived
No one in sight
As soon as I take my seat
Fellow passengers appear like a magic rock garden
Outside the window a breeze
Unnoticed by me ruffles the leaves
A crow patrols her stretch of lawn
Surrounding Sarducci’s parking lot
I feel silent
Observer not participant
Do I wish for some feeling?
I don’t even know
The recording announces
Houghton Freeway Station
Much like any other morning
And more passengers board
Silent still doldrums
