Richard Schnap - Entity

Sometimes I hear it
From the apartment above
A man softly strumming
For someone who’s not there
And sometimes I see it
In the street down below
A young girl in black
With a liquor store bag
And sometimes I feel it
When the hand of the wind
Scatters the blossoms
Of the magnolia next door
But always I know it
As the light fades away
And another day passes
Without learning its name
Richard Schnap is a poet, songwriter and collagist living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His poems have most recently appeared locally, nationally and overseas in a variety of print and online publications.
