The Antidote

Follow the notes…

Songs drip from her lips
and she lifts her fingertips
to smear the sound
down and around
her throat —
follow the notes…
and dote: the antidote
to her ailments
and frequent derailments.

Don’t be confused —
you’re not her hero; not her muse
you could be a tool
just some fool she’s used
to ease the disease
of life’s deficiencies.

But maybe you’re a lover —
somewhere she takes cover;
a cocoon in which to tune
the voices that consume her
which left unsung
might ruin her.
