A Glance

A Glance

by Elizabeth Challinor

Drifting between sleepiness and desire

A rude awakening

The brunt of the defiant drum

Caught in an emotional crossfire

An ocean filled glance

Catches my brain on a hook of tenderness

Holds back the angry words, "I'm done!"

Suddenly, out of nowhere

The intrepid sound of the pollinated clarinet
