Minor Keys

The music plays

harmonious and sweet

full of hope

and bright futures

and predictable progressions

the music begins

in a major key

saving its discordant notes

to jar us into confusion

after the lull of happiness

the minor keys creep in

sowing fear and sharp nerves

finding the pain inside

each body

and plucking it

until it becomes electric

a live wire

the major keys

are left behind

back in the first movement

as the music continues

through the long transitions

playing our way forward – Caroline A. Slee
