like canvas (20170721)

i stretch
until tau(gh)t
i pluck
you like a string
from you
the song of a
single pure note
it is the ringing in my ear
love is tinnitus
there when you’re trying to fall asleep
when you wake up
(almost) maddening
both the roar of the ocean
and the dentist’s whining drill

  1. “love is tinnitus” – fantastic! The pluck and resonance of that note at the beginning sustains nicely throughout.
