Tannhäuser

Venusberg came to life
in the most unexpected place

linocut on antique opera program
one Friday morning 
before the sun rose,
on a  New York City street
two stacks of antique
Metropolitan Opera House
programs and magazines
were thrown in the garbage
with other discarded 
paper products

Divas in the trash
so many stories to tell
so many dramas to act
so many lyrics to sing
this was not their 
final curtain call

I took a stack and
another passerby 
took the other
