DB Cox- A Poem


posed on stage
black dress
stark & glassy
a beautiful face with a smile
as mysterious as the mona lisa’s
a film-noir scene
come to life
singing with an ache in her tone
that hints at the secrets
hidden behind distant eyes
each note
suspended in air
like a trail of cigarette smoke
the place she sang from
utterly untouchable


“more than you'll ever know”

the sound of solitude for sale

pouring her own
secret sorrow over another
roomful of invisible faces
broken phrases
scattered into space

tiny fractions of a singer's life
caught in the dark cracks
between the blues
& the bright white spotlight
