The next concert

My calendar is full
Of concerts and classes
Movies and wine and Mozart
And some of it will be fun
And some of it will be dreadful

Most is just the stuff
Of everyday life
None of it will change me
Forever or reveal
The truth about the world

Better chance of finding
The Answer to life in
Reading Douglas Adams
Listening to his dolphins
But what to do with 42

Is that the number of years
Before I meet someone who
Loves me – right before I die
Better to have loved briefly
Than not at all

Hogwash, I say
It’s a life wasted, waiting
For the lights to dim
For the next concert
To begin
