Operatic Construction of the Ordinary

in the cinder-blocked days

steel- shut clangs



attenuated futures


silent-mouthed tweets

of avian entertainers

whispered inaudibly

of hope

accompanied soundless

by the elegiac

dance of oak leaves


crescendoing din

“life under construction

Closed for renovation”

eclipses the trudging plod

crawl, enduring


echoing silence

of the aftermath

ensemble of a thousand


glissandos from

despair, glimmering


minuet composed of moments

mundane, played mezzoforte

quiet evening with children

meal with siblings bickering

cadence paused with broken measures

aria to normalcy
