The band

The pyrotechnists
1979

translated by Yannis Goumas 

 

The band marched along the provincial esplanade,

sounding martial airs. A boy of forteen,

in a wide hat and the proper uniform,

plaing the trombone, didn' t notice the turning ahead. 

 

When the band wheeled, the boy continued on

with his wide hat and trombone.
