Accordian and red beret

Last night in the Métro at Strasbourg St. Denis, an accordian captured me in transit.
I was dolloped by the lateral movement of wind making song in the tunnel.
Or was it song riding on wind?
For a moment, the world rose and fell there, almost mournful, almost buoyant, between the arms of a man on a folding chair wearing a red beret.

    I’m very often taken by sounds, songs, the wind… and each time I remember that question – is the flag or the wind that is moving?
