Stuart Dybek – Chord

He’s a Michigander, this one!

Also this is better if you think of it being read by Jaqen H’gar from the Game of Thrones. Just sayin’.

A man steps out of sunlight,
sunlight that streams like grace,
still gaping at blue sky
staked across the emptiness of space,
into a history where shadows
assume a human face.
A man slips into silence
that began as a cry,
still trailing music
although reduced to the sigh
of an accordion
as it folds into its case.
