the sound of music

9 Sep

it’s her favourite movie
so i roll this for her
and i tell her: sweet pea
they don’t make music like this anymore
this passed us all by a long time ago
she says: the guy playing flute sounds like a bird
(and he does)
his name is Eric i tell her
oh i like that she says
the name or his sound?
but she’s off to some other room
flying floating swimming gliding
i turn up Coltrane
in the aftermath of her afterburners
to make sure she hears it
