This was so full of seeming contradictions that I been back to read several times before writing anything in response. The use of the silent zitar threw me for a while. Five little lines that have had me looking back again and again. I keep wondering if your intentions were for the imagery of music fading on a beach or if it was the denouement of something more sensual that the words "Ribald" and choice of instrument/music seem to allude to.
I've finally decided that it does not matter, I like it either way. Both bring a sense of peace and contentment with the world. There is nothing that I would change although the title makes me wonder who the show is for and does it need to be a production?
This one is going to my faves. Anthing that make me think this hard on a Friday deserves the honor.
