Jan Dean # 9 Recital

Recital


Have you ever stood
so close to the microphone
you were sure it supported you
and in the midst
of a serious rendition, felt
the shaft slip slowly towards
your feet, telescopically
so an uncontrollable laugh
required a fist over your mouth
forcing silence where sound
should be? It happened to me.

  1. I've followed one down to the ground while playing bass and singing-quite a good laugh at the time!

  2. A laugh is good for the soul. Thanks for the comments Efi, Lucy and Red.
