Joy and the Quill

Image result for quill band images

Wearing so perfect well

The charged emotions

Of every beat and every lyric

Who joins her, shares in

The choruses?

When she spins those

Elaborate circles –

On the stage,

In her head –

Who stands by her side?

Who does she see

In those sublime, string-high moments;

When she lays back

Off the rhythm

Closes her tarot beauty eyes?

With whom does she dance

In performance heat?

In the public eye

Who stands close?

Who does she see

In the wings of the music?

She who chooses the songs,

While orange lights

And greens collide and glance

Off a thousand floors,

As many doors,

Splashing long-leg shadows

Into histories, inspirations

And the future.
