IF YOU LISTEN HARD ENOUGH YOU MAY HEAR A VIOLIN

- MIKE STEEDEN -

violin

Led unwittingly perhaps

Yet led nonetheless

On the merry dance of

Debauched obsession

A naked one at that

Across the square of indignity

Feet long since

Apathetic frozen stumps

Immune now

To anything the carpet of snow

Carried on the wind and

Born of Mother Russia

Could exacerbate

The crack of the horsewhip

A whip held in the hands of

Uniformed assassins

More than stings

Skeletal bare thighs

Of the numbered ones

Young

Old

Male

Female

Those of newly found

Indifference

Jockeying them along

On the odyssey

To the inferno

Where love fell afoul of

Detestation

Time stands still

All these years on

A monochrome vista

No pigeons

Not a place for dreamers

If you listen hard enough

You may hear a violin
