Meeting Zak - Poem by Paola Degli Esposti
It is four o' clock in the afternoon, Luke and Carol are taking the car from the
garage, ready to reach Zak at the 'Smart'.
While Luke is driving and making his path to arrive at the pub, an idea makes
light in his mind.
Carol seems to be quiet at the moment, she knows that they have to be agree
of what to do.
Carol looks the landscape outside the window and admires houses, people,
things that are passing by, she feels nostalgic, so she prefers changing two
words with Luke.
' Do you like my shirt luke? '
' Of course, Carol did you do it by yourselves?
Carol touches the fabric and answers: yes, sure, this is an unique sample! '
' uh uh' Luke comments and shakes his head.
' Carol i have an idea, as soon as we arrive i tell you what i want to
do for tonight.'
' You can anticipate it to me now! .'. Carol answers.
' A moment Carol, now we are in front of the 'Smart', i look for parking.'
So he does and he finds one next to the pub.
Carol and Luke get down of the car and they walk towards the entrance of
' Heilà Luke, heilà Carol! '
Luke is very surprised to find Capt Ed. at the pub and working at
' You know it is a day of holiday, today so i decided to come here and have a beer
and i ve helped Tony here around.'
Luke thanks him and adds: ' You are welcome Capt, and thank you,
where is Zak? '
Capt. Ed informs him that Tony is on stage, Mathilde is there too.
She is checking some lamps.
Carol and Luke get to the stage and Zak stands up and greets them.
' Here we are, Carol is the singer tonight.' Luke says. But i have an idea.
First of all, which songs are you going to play?
Zak smiles to Carol and says: ' Very good, now we are going to do
rehearsals. I ve thought about six cover songs, here it is the list, check it
Carol, do you like them?
Carol takes the sheet and read in silence. Smile on on her face, at sealed lips, than she starts talking in a colourful mood, gesticulating
sometimes and tells Zak: ' Yes, beautiful songs, i like them!
Where is the microphone? ' i want to start immediately, and
the lyrics? I need to read them back! '
Zak is surprised of that temperament, he takes his hands
in a bag and the lyrics come out of it.
' Here they are.' And he sits down on a stool, Luke is giving some instructions
to Capt.Ed in the meanwhile and when he has finished he is ready to
tell his idea.
Okay, guys, i see that you have already begun, so listen to me! '
Carol looks at him astonished and asks: ' An idea? '
