“Our feelings are the most genuine paths to knowledge.” Audre Lorde

I'm Sure It Was The Clarinet

Yesterday I lost a feeling within,
it surfaced and I couldn't quite
locate its origins, and it slipped 
through my ponder for all to see,
it left me feeling irritable and
restless, it might have been the
clarinet buried in the background,
or the shards of charcoal lazing 
on the hearth, perhaps the 
reminiscence of a face or name,
I'm sure it was the trigger of the
clarinet, whatever, it changed my 
mood, a signal for me to look
carefully inwards and now I'm
digging deeper.
