Room Filled With Music

the winged violin soaring through air
all petal & leaf & major key this song

will fit somewhere why not with us
swallow it will fill the body your heart

the pulsating bass in our bedroom
jockeying deep cuts our eardrums

rhythmically rimmed as in whispering
to the other falling asleep is how good

your resounding warmth
