grami tempi magri

there is hardly
any money interest in art,
and music will be there
when money is gone

i tre musicisti tessono jazz, mentre il vento porta via le note e i radi passanti.
un vecchietto si sofferma ad ascoltare compiaciuto una guantanamera sincopata e schizofrenica, seguendo i fraseggi del flauto con brevi cenni del capo e ampi gesti del bastone. lascia cadere la sua offerta nella custodia aperta della chitarra e poi si china, a fatica, fino a posare il ginocchio sul selciato.
la mano fruga cauta tra le monete, il flauto resta appeso ad una sola lunghissima nota.
il vecchio si rialza, puntellandosi al bastone, e ripone il resto nel borsellino. un gesto di saluto, poi si allontana traballante. la chitarra si appoggia con sollievo ad un nuovo accordo, il flauto scivola lungo una misolidia.

magari me li cambiano, questi 5euro.
