Concerto for Two

Foggy, rainy, window pane

Rain taps the window,
a piano with no strings,
while wind blows through trees
in a rhythmless clatter
and a sound like oboes
without reeds.
Cold pierces the wall
with a metallic sharpness
I feel in feet that keep no beat
and on ears that sense only
ticks and whooshes.
I long to hear the soft thump
of heartbeat against my chest,
the a-one-and-a-two-and-a-three
of your warm breath as it
waltzes across my atonal ear.
No nature, nor charts, strings,
reeds or brass could ever move me
as you in concert with us.
