Catch Some Wide Eye

A Cellist Only Has Nine Lives


the sunken, biracial wood fits perfectly into her grooves
the front half from france, the back from tibet
she’d always say while making it pirouette on its endpin
and she’d twirl her bow, too, making music dance
the way her shoulders twitch when she’s very engaged,
face, rapture-bent dwelling in worlds above our heads
in dimensions more real than our own
