As the Drums Sound

As the Drums Sound

Poetry

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
