The Fader Of Heven, By P. Maxwell Davis. (For Betty) - Poem by Jacqui Thewless

Only we recall
the hours of awful practice,
trying to sing it:

our ears battling
for the perfect pitch of two
pure notes, meant to be

close seconds, but more
like needle and magnet, or
brooches - half-hanging,

hinged to a vest and
scarf, ’till we got it. Just so:
twin zones, poles apart.
