Poet
I have seen street musicians in Armory Square, some nights, you know, as you’re coming out of a place, there’s someone there with an open music case. I used the saxophone and the bird-like words with it because saxophones remind me of a bird, the shape of it.

So when I wrote about a street musician playing a saxophone, I wanted to use words that were related to birds—flying, fluttering, that sort of thing. And music notes, they sort of take to the sky on their own, too. So I like to use the bird image.

Open music case
Dollars flutter in as notes
Fly from saxophone
