The lady’s music room

With a nod to Swift:

The notes issue from my clarinet
like Celia from her dressing room,
rising clean and beautiful
to leave me behind –
red eyed from forgetting to blink
with spit dripping on one foot.

Some poetic licence there, I actually sound bloody awful because I’ve hardly played in months.
