when the Mephisto

when the Mephisto
Waltz
came on the radio
this morning, i
remember your glee
that one hot Florida

your whole body
into melting
the piano, two
hands easily
spanning more
than blue skies.

would make
it one day, those
lucky enough to
dream about
floating away

spring tunes up
and down the radio
dial, looking for
a familiar song
to play, while the
rest of us are
on the edges of
our seats, waiting
to be relieved

sunday afternoon

sunday afternoon
between a 2 p.m.
brunch and Ira
Glass
, our
eyelids get
so heavy,
arms, legs
interwoven
into the go-to
NIN
interlude
