Clarinet, Michael Estabrook

I guess if I think about it
for a moment,
I have to admit
that I am not proud
of the fact that in high school
I played the clarinet
in the marching band.
Would have preferred to have been
an athlete, playing football, basketball,
baseball or soccer,
instead of playing the clarinet
in the marching band.
If I could have continued even
in gymnastics,
at that time not the manliest of sports,
rather than have that pesky dorsal lumbar
spinal fusion surgery
that changed my life forever,
it would have been so much better
for me psychologically, I think.
