Un Intermezzo

Thru Violet's Lentz

staccato lines

of separation.

a duet sung

in broken tongues.

your long dried reed.

my unstrung instrument.

un intermezzo

played out of time..

movements plucked

via pizzicato,

staves comprised

of crooked lines.

my solo voice

an intoned requiem.

your obbligato

nocturne, sublime..

pages torn

from il libretto.

silence broken

with each reprise.

internal melodies

defy translation.

lyrical rhythms

untouched by time…
