The Pianist and The Runaway (As An Emotional State)

The Comptine has been playing
for the past few hours now.

It will cry instead of eyes,
it will think instead of memory,
it is a melody of being that documents the shifting
of the winds – or moods.

The Comptine is about losing.
and finding
and may be losing again.
it is his song for when he thinks of her.
It is her song for when she runs.

She has been the meaning of the Comptine
for the past few hours now.

But he wants to hit the pause.
Does she know she’s the meaning?

He will play the Comptine,
he wants her.
for longer than the past few hours now.
