Listen

by Miho Kinnas

Listen
out a violin
from
an orchestra
A swimmer
cuts water
without a splash
an airplane
heard
only at night
A cellist
leads
her pink high-heels
camellia falls
red lip stick by the sink
I am awake
No light in the corridor
before the earthquake
Mazurka ends
like a thief
I spend
the last note
 
For Lynn
