A Rosewood Chanter

in the mail today

for me

from someone unknown.

no address or gift card.

it came from a music store

in Northern Ireland

in a blue box

like a wizard’s wand.


I don’t know if the reed

needs seasoning

or soaking

or what.

it sounds like a sax

having a nervous


I like it.


I’ll record noises

along with bass guitar.


keep wandering.
