Muted Melody

 

she was a story yeller

ONCE!

TWICE!

(and you know)

THRICE!

upon a time

and he,

a hard-to-her

musician

–lyric whisperer

–refrain mumbler

–and mime of melodies on tiny violin

(predating air guitar)

she was soothed by such

&

he inspired

(in the manner of iron lung)

inspired

–dogged attention

to detail most missed

(out of hearing frequency)

details

she played back

AT HIGH VOLUME

–guessing at beat

–tempo

–pitch

and reason

(for composition)

she wove staff

&

knit yarns,

CONVERTING hum TO CRESCENDOS

ever after.
