2 clerks inside the music store
The Process of Certain Arts
-The gathering of guitar students out there.
-Raw beginners and somewhat advanced.
-The latter pretty good.
-One person hangs apart. Royalty. Doesn’t
speak to any of them.
-The Master Teacher comes rarely, and
only for him.
-He’s so terrific, you’d think nothing
left to teach him.
-Little things here and there.
-Anyway, they’ll hafta hurry. Master
Teacher goes on tour in a month.
-Then our new artist joins the band
backing some mega star. Already signed.
He'll get solos when she rests.
-Didn’t know that. And! After all the years
of booze and broads and drugs and acclaim...?
-It’s back here as the new Master Teacher.
Twenty pounds lighter and nerves about shot!
-How many more of these cycles we got left,
before we die or retire?
