Measured Extravagance

The Singer Faces the Composer

Why not middle E
or middle A?

Is it where the cows are halted,
butter ripped from the whey?

Is it steam upon a mirror
or silver painted on grey?

Is it the shiver splitting a whine
apart from a cooling moan

or is it the rumble sieving the hair
away from the mossy bone?

Is it the melting ribbon of ice
glazing a loaf of stone?

Why not middle G
or middle D?

Why plague me with notes
my voice cannot free?

You seek sweet resolves?
Then choose a new key.

For the June Ampersand Project (theme: "views of the border").
