Yuja Wang at Carnegie Hall

Yuja Wang at Carnegie Hall
the neck of the cello’s shadow
rocking against her back
like a jolted metronome
as she played the Steinway,
Brahms Cello Sonata No. 1 in E Minor, Op. 38
she in a pearlescent
Betty Boop-style dress
and metallic silver stilettos
and the cellist in a black suit and neck tie
his wedding band catching the spotlight
