Cello

I heard the human heart responds most
to the mourns of the cello because it's range
mirrors the limits of the human voice

     85hz
        to
           255hz

In the trembling of strings,

  timbres of

       memories

          of longings

even the silence quivers
with the faintest echo
of the desire that never
fully came to rest
