Description: Handwritten draft beginning: 
"Flickering in pools of rain. That street. That rain." (Editorial marks indicate that the order of those last two phrases should be reversed.)

The work would first become part of the ending to "A Letter." Later, those verses would be separated to become the poem "After the Blue Note Closes."
