THE SILENT PUMP ORGAN

THE SILENT PUMP ORGAN This wooden brown spinet… it waits in a back room in this Clovis museum till someone can fix it. Played at a home or church? Its last song? How long must it stay voiceless, its last song played in a home or church, till someone can fix it? In this Clovis museum, it waits in a back room, this wooden brown spinet. This is a palindrome poem (Last line is the same as the first line, penultimate same as the second, etc.), first published in Medusa's Kitchen.

Hi Jennifer. This is a well-crafted, mirror poem as well as a Palindrome. I really like the theme here. God bless you.

Hi Jennifer, I would love to see that old organ. It seems somewhat neglected. Your poem brings it to life, like it has a story to tell. Thank you for sharing.
