The Composer [a pantoum]
The opera sleepwalks
Into minor opulent salutations
The man is a mirror
More side note than hex

Into minor opulent salutations
The maestro composes his sonata
The man is a mirror
The woman is his shadow

The maestro composes his sonata
Viola as a violent wind storm
The woman is his shadow
The voodoo of harp and horn

Viola as a violent wind storm
The lover clutches his muse
The voodoo of harp and horn
Religion as creation

The lover clutches his muse
More side note than hex
Religion as creation
The opera sleepwalks.
