The jazz guitarist
who performs on
"Jazz Thursdays"
every Thursday
at the vegetarian
restaurant a few
blocks down the
street from my
apartment building
must play in front
of the stock-room
door to be out of
the wait persons'
zone of traffic
and every time
one of the stoned
kitchen staff comes
out for a case of
buns or bucket of
cold pasta he must
slide his chair left
or right to allow
them access but
somehow manages
not to miss a beat
or note in whatever
song he's playing.
