Strikethrough 24

Created Mon Oct 12 2020

I.
A siren wails
 
on the other end of a Face
 
Time call that bleeds through
 
space— digital, physical, unspoken
 
hearts beating
 
across time zones now
 
Run your calloused fingers over
 
the frets, frets, and don’t fret over
 
the muted moments, the lulls
 
in conversation or in signal or song
 
it’s not clear
 
but that hardly matters
 
II.
A siren wails
 
on the other end of a Face
 
Time call that bleeds through
 
space— digital, physical, unspoken
 
hearts beating
 
across time zones now
 
Run your calloused fingers over
 
the frets, frets, and don’t fret over
the muted moments, the lulls
 
in conversation or in signal or song
 
it’s not clear
but that hardly matters
 
 
omit figure
omit connectivity
omit anything discernible
 
insert immediacy
 
insert universality
 
insert heartache
 
 
 
 
III.
A siren wails
 
on the other end of
Time that bleeds through
 
space— unspoken

muted lulls
 
in conversation or in signal or song
 
it’s not clear

now
 
Run calloused fingers over
the frets, frets, and don’t fret over
muted lulls
 
in conversation or in signal or song
 
it’s not clear
but that hardly matters
 
 
 
insert limited expanse
 
 
 
 
 
insert mother's voice
 
insert shrug
 
 
 
V.
A siren wails
on the other end of
space— unspoken
hearts beating
now
 
Run calloused fingers over
frets, frets, don’t fret over
muted lulls
it’s not clear
but that hardly matters
