Amos two

Amos two

Amos studies the length of the violin’s neck and compares it to what rises and falls in his throat. Can Amos and this violin find a way to sing together? It seems impossible. The air circulates between two bodies.   The impulse to cry hits Amos; he makes no sound. Nor does the violin.

One thought on “Amos two

  1. Ah! I want to laugh out loud in response. And to cry. Thanks to this tiny meditation, I reflect on the longing to express oneself, to connect and to create. And on the difficulty of doing so. And on the marvel of someone imagining Amos meeting a violin and having this inward conversation.
