As the Drums Sound - poem by Annabelle Kang

     You are empty and loud
     Just like the drums that sound
     So close to me that my body quakes
     I am five years old again
     Hiding under the table
     Bruised knees pressed on hardwood floors which have seen spilled blood and wine win against flesh and bone
     The conductor writes fortississimo—
     The whole house obeys



Annabelle Kang is an English Literature student at Concordia University in Montreal.
