Empty dew drops on the piano
Slide hopelessly into the mechanism
Waterlogging the melody.
Sloshing now, the music drips
Into my ears and trunk,
Nurturing my thirst.
The Cherokee in me hunts
The rhythm, shooting an arrow
Into the heart of the song.
I spread my fingers across the baize,
Seeking stability and mobility,
Far away from taunting nihility.
