8 – Night Music

Night Music

The D key
on my neighbor’s piano
sounds like an owl


maybe a mourning dove



the bell buoy
off Mermaid Rocks?

doong doong doong
doong doong doong
Wrong direction, though
an alarm? my phone?

too low for tinitus
its angel songs

too late for a piano
I thought, but

doong doong doong
doong doong doong

That D key had center stage
drowned out the others
in pitch-perfect tones
enough to wake birds
and me, my angels in check

while the Sound rocked on…
