aNDREW bURKE #3 Moody Requiem (in response to Judith Beveridge's BREATH)

each breath a bar to
begin the moody requiem

the light pizzicato toward
a tympani climax

I hear it tick
a steady four/four

when I walk the dog -
then skip a beat

wake me in
pitch black of night -

the pipes travel
their new routes

as the organ pumps
the remaining blues
