A Song for Tonight

He introduced himself as Rico, but said his first name was Confessor. He called out to us as we were leaving Mia Piace, and said he had a song he wanted to sing for us, so we stopped to listen. He played an old classical guitar with nylon strings. ("Not bad for $60 bucks!" he said later.) He sang us a a bluesy song about a woman named Katy who left him, "not because she fell out of love with me," he said, but because she missed her home on the East Coast, and she just couldn't make it out here. I think he might still love her, but he hasn't followed her to Baltimore, so it's hard to say.
