RETURN OF THE TENOR
Last night I heard the cellomoan
of that hoot owl again.
Most evenings it sounds like
Pablo Casals, but this time he
was my dead father humming
Italian Opera. We rode arias
from Aida, Tosca, and Pagliacci
straight through to Maryland.
The second we crossed the Mason
Dixon, the curtain came down.
