Recuerdos de la Alhambra

"Recuerdos de la Alhambra"
was on one of the few cds
I took to college,
and since it was the first track
and I couldn't figure out how
to program the alarm clock
to play anything but,
I woke to it almost every morning
of my first semester

as if it were my own version
of Bill Murray's
Groundhog day,
only I never tried to kill myself,
or seduce a woman
(at least not the same one repeatedly),
and the events following the awakening
were different.

It's really my favorite
and only
classical guitar piece
I know
and can hum competently,
bringing back memories
each time...
just not of Alhambra.
