Music Monday-Song Four, Letitia Minnick

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.
