“What She Deserves” ~ Ursula’s Sad Day Playlist


Salva Lopez

By the water of tears layered
in musical subtext,
like a helmet
this sequence of songs protects.
Songs to grab the heart of a listener;
songs enchanting,
shifting in their manner,
offering a doorway
to understanding.

Music like a helmet;
to have such lovely,
shiny fragments swirl into some
shimmering whirlpool let loose
to heal.

She lifts a hand
to shield the glare & covers
the whole Universe
