Niall O'Sullivan


The last thing we will do
               is lose the frown.
He no longer needs the
               electric reader
as he tightens and loosens
               the string, listens
from the wordless depths
               that music came from.

In seconds, he's hit a
               pitch perfect A
and is sent back to an
               early spring night
when they came together
               without a thought
of it coming to an end
               or lasting forever.
