I Played by Tanya Cliff

I played
a beautiful song
in multicolored notes
across a lined page
carefully metered
for sweet-sounding melody

wind-blown notes from warm lips –
the air-born gifts of a hand-held flute

I played
on a concrete step
that led
to a House of White
where they stole my sheet
and blotted out the rainbow hues

leaving me but a monotonous tune –
the repetitive honk of a lonely goose
