Listen to the music

As I listen to the music


I ask myself

Which one am I?

A

Beautiful Dreamer

or 

The Called -

someone destined 

to an uncommon and remarkable purpose?


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

Is there even a difference?

The sounds 

of the rude world

outside my window

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord
 

are not lulled

by gossamer moonlight

but the songs of life strike

a beckoning

an invitation

within me to tread and plow

an abandoned path.

An abandoned path

paved in questions

doubts

failures.

But in the faithful silence of 

barren footsteps

I hear

It could be argued


that my mind 

is

a ballroom for ghosts

where threadbare netting hosts

my peripheral space

and I hear music 

with my feet.


anita pelayo rivera



is now recorded in light 

with the help of friends


anita pelayo rivera  les dames d'abord
  
who have continued the dance after me


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord



but who've also had to turn off the music

temporarily.


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

But the dance moves on

and

what I do for love

is being choreographed 

on a stage of a rare

and luminous timeline.


anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord


So whether in the past or present tense
