St. Matthew’s Passion in full-out all-red.
The soprano startles me,
something terrifying in German,
which (German) I don’t understand,
and cop car bigger than an elephant
pulls up front,
radio silence to sneak
on me but lights
in big street disco,
“You can’t do that boy!
No Bach at work.
Come with me.”
I loosen my tie
to get some air.
