Jenny Mae Leffel will never sing again
Her voice is lost in the rafters of heaven
Her notes shower the earth with meteors
The smoke of the verses rises and tears
The syntax disintegrates as time totals
Her careening chariot the smashed wheels
Bent but still turning in the afterglow,
This refuge, this remnant, this echo,
Of crashing symbols and a piercing
Siren above the screech of steel strings
