Vibration

Vibration

BY EMMANUELLA DEMOSTHENES

No vibration strikes no chords
Stir no hearts to no longing
No minds to no answers
Deaf notes play the melody to which we dance.

No sing-song “Good Mornings”
No off-key solos to the hairbrush
Just silent mornings where Father drinks coffee like a vampire thirsty for blood
And I search my Cheerios for your face
And how I long for a single vibration
To fill this empty house with sound,
With song,
With life,

With you.
