Lonely Voice
by Amy Zoellers 

the You in you—-is it your own?

but no, you’re wrong.

it is imbued, suggested by our song,

our music, we, who walk alone

.

and chained here, having wandered weird—

our music, we, who walk alone

we shelter in the gramophone,

suggestions haunt unseen, unfeared

.

infested, this Victrola, filled

with placeless souls who only dare

to flick the drapes, perfume the air

as pained and jeweled songs we share

.

songs to you, accursed, entwined

here chained, having wandered weird

our vessel, relic: left behind

Now who will listen? Who will mind?

Who are we with none to hear?

.

    Very haunting and beautiful.

  2. Marge Simon says:

    The poem fits the styles in the photograph so well! A bit of spectral wind from the past.

  3. This is great – so evocative – love the line “having wandered weird” which carries us with the sound of the trapped souls.
