Some Light Borealis Music
The conductor lifted his straw,
and colours spilled from double
helix chimes – primal tints
and tones of conjoined mirror
duets, and the orchestra played
scales, splayed raw on each
curved gathered skirt edge.
We fell free and swinging
into every note. The conductor’s
arm stoked the stars, scattering
mist in primary colours, and we
watched vast waves of song
chase after the northern star.
Unleashed, the night sky danced
until tattered – when he drew
them back into the last breeze
of an Aurora Boreas dream.
