Daily Paper on the Lawn | A Poem by Donal Mahoney

An hour before dawn
the paper is out on the lawn
white in the moonlight

a trumpet dozing after a
long night in a jazz bar
tired from playing

but willing to play
a last set for me
not knowing I read

only sports and the obits
two riffs in the paper
anyone can believe
