in resonance, like spaces between leptons and quarks,
interstitial loops from which viruses and skyscrapers
are strung. Says a piano must be free

that tie us to our seats in recital halls.

and libraries warbling a ditty he sings
before bed or upon rising at dawn, tuned
to his pulse’s link with Pythagoras and the stars.
