than a Strad,
older than a yesterday,
the viola that is
mine—as if anyone
can own a sound,
carrying its youth,
its song,
within a soundpost

Made by a man who was soon
to go mad,
after Brahms,
before Piazolla

If I hand it to you,
don’t worry about anything but
the flame of her back,
the ribs of her waist,
her scroll’s deep secrets;
the arrival schedule of
madness is more fluid
than you think
