Connections: March 19

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAMiddle C

used to be

the first

forever imbedded

eared, eyed, and headed

for better or for worst.

The alpha note

small-finger-smote

awaking addiction

family friction

in eventual Czernian bloat.

Oh, the hours misspent

a perpetual Lent

da capo ad nauseam

no break or pauseam

my youth distorted and bent.

Why wasn’t I Rubenstein?

Why only me?

What sadistic muse

designed this ruse

this siren-song’d middle C?
