Poetry Friday: Em's Song, Take #2 by Carrie Jones

She dances swirling on the staff notes
Beyond the treble clef
Where I'm left watching,
Emmie,
Emmie in a spinning skirt,
Emmie with the notes
All in front of her paying,
playing,
playing
Until the coda,
until it ends,
until she falls
Off te sheet music,
waiting for someone to catch her.
- Em's Song, Take #2 as "written" by Belle, the main character in Love (and Other Uses for Duct Tape) by Carrie Jones
