The Song that Plays On #duetpoetry


Their bodies resonate with sound

a single note on the scale

longing for vibrato

clefs of desire

trebling in volume and intensity

reaching their highest height

an ecstatic crescendo

grand finale never resolves

a new note discovered

chord of fevered joy ~tremolo

concerto of two

your timbre entwined in mine

A song that plays on

Lately my co-author Sean Vessey and I have been on a writing roll. This and The Fuse popped on the screen after writing Quest for Titan for three long hours. It’s our traditional duet form; I will leave the reader to determine which line belongs to which voice. I did cheat by inserting  a couple musical terms I couldn’t remember.

    Hey girl, Beethoven was/is famous for his looong codas. He never knew when to quit, after the grand finale, he kept on writing, and the music kwpt on playing. Of course, he, a genius, could get away with it…
