DAY 6, POEM 6: HE WISHES FOR THE GLOCKENSPIEL OF HEAVEN (after Yeats)

for Danny Federici

What were they thinking,
adding that high school
marching band sound?

Was that the point:
stepping out of those years
and into reluctant adulthood?

In German it means
"play bells"—
did they know that?

I wish I could stop wondering
about it sometimes,

though doing so doesn't really hurt anyone.

Just add it to the list,
I guess.
