“Symphonymphony,” by Christine Tsen

Aug 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Poetry

Desire between my legs –
A cello
Or is it?

A stick in my hand –
A bow
Or is it?

Darkly garbed in concert attire
My eyes scan the audience –
Opening notes spark
As I play a classical theme
Concentrating on shifts.

Slippery glisses –
There is no way to stop
As I clench the bow tightly
Music flowing out
In rhythmic bow mastery
Paradise streaming unabated
In a blind rush of infinite quavers.
