Tombstone Tales 003: A Little Night Music

The clock ticks away the hour


of midnight and in a web


of white light a piano


is playing a little


night music:




"Allegro!"




But where is the pianist?




Look at the keys, they go up


and down as the Rondo dances


through the deserted street


with this Lord and his Lady


dressed only


in her jewellery.




And the clock ticks away


the hour of midnight


when they jump


in the canal



as they always did



and always do


and forever




will.
