It’s A Different Kind of Sadness When It Sings

why is it
every time i touch
an instrument
it cries?
strum one chord
press just one key:
the tone is
always mourning as
the sadness
vibrates through
fingers and
breath
no matter what
i may have
first intended.
some people bemoan indifference;
i think i care too much.
the thing is
i’m not sad right now
( but it’s the only
. kind of language
. that i

. know. )
