Like Musical Instruments by Tom Clark. (b.1941)

34
Like musical instruments
Abandoned in a field
The parts of your feelings

Are starting to know a quiet
The pure conversion of your
Life into art seems destined

Never to occur
You don't mind
You feel spiritual and alert

As the air must feel
Turning the sky aloft and blue
You feel like

You'll never feel like touching anything
or anyone

Again
And then you do.
