Metro Mona-Lisa
unknown

Behind me I have just left
 1
a girl who played the violin.
 2
She was sat on a stool
 3
at the foot of an escalator.
 4
 
About twenty and rather pale,
 5
there was something masculine
 6
in the movement of her arms
 7
and thin white fingers;
 8
their strength contrasting
 9
with the soft oval of her face.
 10
I stopped to look at her
 11
and she moved her mouth.
 12
 
I have no idea what air she played,
 13
but I think she played it well
 14
with that almost-smile.
