2020-11-10 – In the Key of She

i scale each
note of
her

magpie tune
onto brittle
branches

and wait each
season
out..

and if there’s an
encore yet to
be played
out

to be heard,
to shred
these

ears, well dear you
know my
fear..

for the shrillest
tone on

midnight’s navy
breath is
you,

you’re still the
tinny keys i
bang my
hands
into.
