Ever Changing

Music can only be heard one way,

words have a different refrain


Melody imprisoned by note and score,

what’s written when read apt to change


The ear a prisoner to the composer’s delight,

to listen—a captive within


But reading the lines that a poet inscribes

ever changing—each time you begin


(Dreamsleep: January, 2021)
