my light touch

I can’t get past my light touch.

I’d love to pound on the keys–

strum hard on the strings–

be that straining voice in the concert hall–

never gonna happen.

but I do have words

and even words gently spoken

have a power of their own,

the power to cut through chaos

like the single clear note

of a glass bell
