Music for Poetry

This beat 
This beat beats 
And beats 
On and on 
And it stops 
Long enough for me 
To take a drink 
Long enough for me to think and change keys 

A minor
B flat 
See things differently
Hear things exceptionally
And breathe to a beat of your own design 

On a dock 
Counting crows--I am fine
Tracing time, running laps 
In and out
Through my mind 

Dancing to a song never played 
Entirely right 
Eyes latched 

Play me a pretty song
Pry me open 
Hang on tight and dance with me again
