betray an angel beneath.
Her vibrating ivory eye,
trapped under fingers preciously placed
for agility, control, and beauty…
Her ringing, fat song-note
leaving circles in the air...
Scroll rocking back,
bearing fistfuls of Sonata,
She explodes loudly in fits,
Dust settles, night chills the bones
of music tucked inside her burgundy
In morning, light-shaft dizziness
glints off strings pressing
crevices to arc-
She fights the silence day after day-
Until one strain joins the
Music of the Spheres in
Her dancing light spiccato,
gather to the most brilliant pulsar-
deep purples and violet.
Against the black of sunlight,
of house lights down.
