The Lead Singer

Posted: July 4, 2019 in Uncategorized

The lead singer always wears red,
her signature color, the way the notes feel best,
and she prances on stage, flits,
and steps out for a break,
maybe in the alley out back,
catching her breath or even a snack.

But the three pips never leave their positions
as they crane their necks
arching them to the sky, letting loose
a cacophony of sound, waiting
for the woman in red to return
with just the right bug.
