Music of Living in LoveIn love with a heartbeat
Each breath, a song
between blinks, a measure
every movement, a note
a smile like the violin
hands like the guitar
but each follows the heartbeat
the drumbeat of your song
your words sing in harmony
and intertwine like vines
these heartbeats come together
begin to beat as one
two songs ring on so sweetly
the tempo rising steadily
fell in love with a heartbeat
which turned into a song
a blink of an eye, we're older
the tempo rises, together
crescendo, then the climax,
of a lifetime spent in awe
of the melody written between us
perfect notes written on parchment skin
wrinkled, with imperfections
the song is slowing, fading
these two heartbeats come together,
one last finale, slows with each moment
the heartbeats begin to fade
such sweet music made by that lifetime
they blinked, the measure was over
their movement stiffened, but the song played on,
until the last heartbeat
those lovely heartbeats
beat their last, and were gone.
on old sanzu - absolutely true fictionlast fall i stole my friend down by the tama river. we sang. we danced. we skipped dead fish like rocks and watched them get swallowed by the undertow. we got sick off of bad chinese food and went skinny-dipping and then a week later she drowned herself.
her uncle was a yakuza, i think, but he really just wanted to be al pacino or something. anyway, she loved him a lot. maybe that’s why she went down the way she went down; cement shoes. not real cement, but it was the same idea. she had two cloth bags with yellow-painted cinderblocks inside, and they were tied to her ankles like the prisoners’ chains from o brother where art thou.
in my mind’s eye i can see her, limping dreadfully close to the edge of the current, her left hand gripping at her breasts through a loose t-shirt. kneeling by the wastelands, elbows in the gravel, crawling forward out into the water. angry like a dermis under wool, all teeth and salt and sand. sleepy, submissive, sublimated.
