Stones Man

You seem to me, I said to him, to be a man of few acquaintances and even fewer friends. He smiled and said,
“Well, I am essentially a one-man band”
I asked him, “what’s the music like?”
“Terrible, awful, I can hardly play, there is no Audience for it, I can’t make a living from it at all”
“Then why continue?”
“Well, I have all the instruments now!”
“I guess, you at least, enjoy playing?”
” Not really”
“Would it, not be wise, then, to stop”
“Someday”
He rolled around with his hand, the few small smooth stones he always carried in his overcoat pocket, and smiled.
