Short Notice of Harmony

Prompt 5: Write a discovery poem.


Short Notice of Harmony

With minutes left,
it is almost time to resign stale melodies.
For once, no notes performed in despair
or synthesized in foul air
between series of
sharps and flats.

Within seconds,
Over the souls of 52 whites and 36 blacks,
4 strings attached,
One sax and trap,
Highly pitched in,
Mr. Alto found a fine tune.
