April 30th – Music

I DID IT! Enjoy my last poem for the month. So stoked that I actually made it all the way to the end ^_^. Here’s the swansong of my NaPoWriMo challenge:

Orchestra of A Dying Body

Here, the restless drum –
beating out his heartbeat
in erratic infarctions;
in the haywire countdown.
And here, the brass sounds
sharp as needle points.
Each defibrillator charge
becomes a series of
crescendos in this;

the undoing – the deflation
of us into a solemn strings
piece. This is how silence
happens; gradually –
a horde of conductors
call time on keeping
the music alive.
