Schubert in Six Years

by Mattia Maurée

Written outside of NEC coursework

 

I am fully prepared

to finish at thirty-one

 

Assumptions: no pregnancy,

the birth of string quartets

and song cycles, choosing

mania over you;

my sisters grow up, I find

whiskey too often and slip

away with the selkies,

giving all parts to my beloved

Puget Sound, the first to

make me a woman
