Lost in the Music

Lost in the Music

On the radio
Two musicians
A violinist and pianist
I grab my violin 
An orange rocket I will play
Along with the Stradivarius
He bows powerfully
And tenderly
The Strad responds
My bow is sharper than his
As I attack my instrument
Over the boards
Of this small stage
I denude it's.flesh repeatedly
As stripes of notes
Fall on to the  audience
Between the movements
Each phrase is clipped
As if to shorten this great piece
My violin passionately reveals
It's inner glory
The steamy pot reminds me
I have carrots to cut
Oh but we made such 
Beautiful music together
Bon appeftit
Applause fills this aromatic air.
