The Beat, Without Repeat

The-beat-the, the-beat-the, the-beat
Drawn into my innards so sweet.

A lifetime of heartbeats come smoldering back-
The child, the teen, the young adult
Pound, out of sync.
But together they sound so heavenly sweet.

Feet dashing down school halls;
The brush swooshes through hair in the mirror;
Sweet love burns down childhood’s stick house.
Starting with a flicker…then inferno...then fizzle.

This middle-age relic inhales the heat, while
Lost in the-beat-the, the-beat .

Crash of air, piped, piped, piped to the-beat-
Boom, rest, boom, rest, boom, there’s more;
Multi-task sensors want more, much more!

Adding to, multiplying on-
The-beat-the, the-beat-the, the-beat

An infinity of joy, without repeat.
Yes, yes, yes…..maybe?

Fire’s almost out…
And smoke has no beat

    Great poem David. oh yes the beat goes on and on until it flickers out. As age catches up with me, I yearn for the harmony behind the beat. Thnks for the read, my friend....peter
