Thursday


Twosome.

The violin
kept it's notes
to itself
like birds
in a cage.........
The man
kept his heart
to himself
like a hound
on a leash.......
Then
one day
the man left the room
where he slept
and walked
into the room
where the violin rested......
he picked up
the bow
lifted the violin
cradled it in
the hollow of a shoulder
and played..........
The notes were freed,

so was his heart.
