ear

a drummer’s drum floats
mid the Arctic ocean,
frosty, but beatable.

Revolving chunks of ice
thump against the head
with resonant chime

a bell choir

brass trim that increasingly
weighs it down.
swelling wood.

a wide audience discusses
the poor durability
the audience changes,
yet discusses

the resonance continues
trailing
