On Chagall’s “Green Violinist”

“If people read the words of the prophets with closer attention, they would find the keys to life.” – Marc Chagall

Imagine waking to the racket of Chagall's
green violinist dancing on the rooftops.

What tune does a purple-coated fiddler play
in the winter to wake the neighbors?

Every woke fiddler is green-skinned
and wears one black shoe and one white shoe.

Awaken from one-footed dreams 
of flying in purple pajamas.
