nineteen cold bards

i was nineteen years old
when i heard Tennessee Williams
give reading from his novel
at Indiana's Notre Dame University.
i remembered through mind associations.
the scarf i was given,
warming me from cold today,
was like one Capote wore.
Truman Capote hated Tenessee Williams
so said Princess Lee Radziwill.
a handsome scarf worn today,
connected me the old bards.
