Days Twenty-Six and Twenty-Seven: "Execution" and "A Passage for Trumpet"

Execution

Condemned man escapes
into future, but justice
will take what is due:

hanging meted out by rope
or thin curtain cord—timeless.



A Passage for Trumpet

The man plays jazz, hates
his life. But he is given
a new chance to see

good in the music he makes,
the world he had forsaken.
