pianissimo (not in B&W)

pianissimo

 

end of september shows up

cold blue bitter

 

and it falls, worried

dry wind

a million, million raindrops

of frozen time

 

(this earth never stops spinning)

 

stop.

stopped.

stepped down.

 

i wish to disembark now

this ride’s too fast for me

 

street light wears a light orange halo

eyes burn a glow: is this a sign?

 

everything:

holy crosses

along the center of my gravity

the bit between ribs and hips

(still a sign?)

 

wear this cold september sash low

to cover the scars

words burn holes

in my

in my

in my

i forget now

 

talk about perpetual motion

and honest tea

or shot of scotch

to loosen the sole

found on the bottom

of a broken shoe

 

(notice

how the tile sounds in the kitchen)

 

(daisies in my eyes

yellow centers

white petals

i’m blinded by flowers)

 

just a moment while i turn my back

rip me to pieces, you can

 

turn the piano book upside down

and follow notes across the page

g clef be comes f clef

strange notation becomes

a beautiful sound

 

yes

skips in to my nose

down the back of my throat

 

not to be

to be

salt

but i do not

care

 

b flat is the note of my soul.
