that evening at the bar...all was well,
consuming as usual

Then:
One note shattered my heart
I stepped up the ladder
while the audible vibration
raced through my system

Are the others deaf?
talk shouldn't matter...
I felt emotion,
genuine, unabridged

Bother me with death, desillusion or hate
I do not care
I can not care
My heart sings,
a minor I believe
without voice,
but does it matter?

Triangular flashes of light
mix with symmetry
is this natural...
or am I no longer human?
