E – 11 – rewrite


11. centrifuge

a centrifuge tucked into a wood
case, a music box of sorts, this was
her gift to her very young child

she instructed on its use, for it to be
placed in her daughter’s head, be able
to pick apart each note and minor key,

compose every possible arrangement, the
worst of the worst case scenarios, the
best of the bad before it actually begins

her promise to herself, her pledge
to her child, a lifetime locked into
the melodies a mind must spin,

a centrifuge tucked into a wood
case, a tool kit of sorts, to survive
what is surely to may be ahead
