If I find a quarter I can make a call

Ricky Garni

I once knew a girl
from Newtown, Pennsylvania
and I played a red guitar in her backyard
with lemonade on a Saturday

She eventually married a very rich man
and lived in New York near the water
where she sold art in a gallery
that was very chic and sold nicely

When I say eventually
I mean like twenty years later
possibly thirty
maybe forty

I think I had sold
The red guitar by then

To someone I have forgotten
who said this is a beautiful guitar
and even though it was I sold it

probably for
three hundred

possibly for

or maybe – zero
