In Time To The Music

Selling my mother’s book

at the Western Nova Scotia

Exhibition Eye have seen

many kinds of people

in time to the music

including a Mexican family tending

an adolescent in a wheelchair

who was fed sips of water

in time to the music

as his father listened

to The Mariachi Band

and fanned his son

with a towel

in time to the music

as the painted Senoritas

flounced their wide red skirts

in time to the music

and a very young girl watching

bounced herself around

in time to the music

and Eye watched

an Indian woman in Red & Gold

dance for an imaginary lover

in time to the music
