NY Philharmonic Free Concert Series


My friend, her mother and I
sat down two hours before the
Manhattan concert began
and still weren't close enough to see the stage.

We picnicked and chatted
before, during, and after.


A guy behind us kept giving us the stinky stink eye,
but we got there first
and he was just a little too serious
for a free event which happens in public. 

The sky was clear
and the accompaniment was a low hum
of murmured conversations.


There is nothing like
the silence of ten thousand people between movements.
