all day, the rain falls

all day, the rain falls
in brooklyn like a fugue,
repeating the same
theme on its way
down – ledge, leaf,
rung, stoop,
ledge, leaf, rung,
stoop, ledge,
leaf, rung, stoop –
rubato-
ing and
accelerando-ing
together
with the ease of
a seasoned symphony

springs’ sleigh bells

springs’ sleigh bells
have sprung
jingling
in the wind’s expert
grip, leaning
towards that
full symphony

in the car heading

in the car heading
southeast, we all looked
back
towards
the sky’s symphony,
seventeen minutes before
sunset, twenty-two
are we there yets?
until serenity

the last time i dressed

the last time i dressed
up for you, we were
twenty-two
and unsure
of where we stood
with one another.
someone was playing
the piano on
stage, and, in the
dark, your
hand drifted
over. and then,
an entire
symphony.
only now
could we
recognize
the simplicity

waking before the

waking before the
6:32 sunrise is
like walking along
the corridors of the
music building and
searching for an
available practice
room through
eavesdropping.
the hallway is a
symphony, and somehow,
when the sun finally
rises, all the birds
fall silent,
except that one,
and you know for sure
that you are awake
