Both of them an equinox,
His pallid bones, her ivory blocks,
Her ebony of solid wood,
And his the darkness he’d withstood.

His heart on every line he rained
And out shed music from her veins.
None knows, observing her with him,
Where her blood ends and his begins.


I was just drawing in my sketchbook and wanted to do a computer keyboard, then it became a piano keyboard that was warped as if it was a ribbon. Then thought about Dali (obv). Then had an idea for a poem about a musician who has some unnatural, paranormal relationship with his instrument. This was the drawing in my sketchbook (before I tore it out) when the pages were still wet with water I’d used to bleed the lines.
finished equinox bloody piano poem designed final
This is what happens when you go overboard on the design, resulting in changing the lines of the poem and detracting from the original poetic rhythm/structure. Hahaha. Had to share just for the sake of a good laugh. What was I even thinking?

    1. Thanks for coming and reading again ESP! So grateful to hear your kind feedback. I’m so glad. And also happy to know you liked the back story. I never used to say much about my pieces but I’ve started to try doing that here and there because my best friend mentioned how much it enhances the enjoyment of the piece itself and makes people see things they didn’t before. So I will try to do this some more if it seems fitting. Have a great day!
