Mary's dream

At the edge of a stage
the young man sits
playing guitar
to an empty hall:
there is no one
to judge,
or to complain
save Mary,
on her knees,
praying, hoping against hope
that her son will survive;
that his music will resonate
across the ages;
that this is one melody
that will never fade...
and is this, too,
some outworn fairy tale?
