The Magic of Music ©Dawn Minott

On a “Sunny April Afternoon”
Poised at the “Edge Of Your Atmosphere”
You arrange rhythmic sounds
Eclipsing the moon at “Sunset Strip”

Create a fantasy “Fruitloop Daydream”
Though “I Am My Father’s Daughter”
I was first conceived in the crevices of your womb
“Don’t Touch Me While I Am Sleeping” the sleep of rhapsody

The melodic “Bang [of] The Drum” “Knocks Me Out” softly
Let me deep-dive into your elixir of “Life in a Bottle”
While you unpack heartbreak’s “Tiny Box Of Lies”
You, the “Secret Lover”, strum them like a truth serum

When I awake lull me not to the “Life Despite God”
But to life with God
To produce beauty of form, harmony, expressions of emotion
To produce the magic of music

Afterword: This poem is set to the titles of Linda Perry’s albums.
