#Poem: The Keening

And in the keening,
 The heart of the note
 That reached out into me,
 That reached out into us.

 Oh, how it vibrated by bones
 And stirred my blood
 And changed how I felt 
 And changed how I feel
 About you. 
 About us. 

 And in the keening,
 The heart of the note
 A thousand years of anguish
 Scattered in the wind
 That reached down in to me
 That reached out into us.

 Oh how it rattled my insides,
 Made me wish I was inside
 And not in this wind.

 But here we are
 Being rattled and changed
 Atom by atom.
