Music Monday is a music prompt writing event done each week in the Show Offs Community on Google Plus. Each week we take a different song, listen to it and write about how that song makes us feel. This piece was written for Song Four embedded below.
Flywheels spin in a hiss of steam
as teeth bite into teeth
and gears turn.
The grand machine,
oiled by its own flesh,
is determined to wring blood
from a stone.
This poem was written for this music as a music prompt. For the full effect listen to the music while reading this poem.
