The Key of Melancholy — A Truth


“Moon” — C.Birde, 4/20


There are nights when I wake

with the Moon,

in one of Her many guises,

resting on my windowsill

singing in the very same

melancholy key

as the chords ringing

in my head,


and I ask,

in sleep-soft speech,

What key are we





— C.Birde, 4/20
