Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending,
because it does not scoff & scream,
gaslight & gossip, & insult, critique
Liszt’s Liebestraume 3,
because it does not disappear & cheat with sons
& say immature, insecure, controlling
Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E Minor,
because it does not daydream
about those it once loved
Schubert’s Vier Impromptus,
doesn’t kill us
Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata,
it makes me feel safe
