Pianissimo

by Lacey Smith

Pianissimo

If there is a paradise
for my own it
will

[fall like water casting shadows that]
burn

And the palest of blues will
take on character,
like voices that used to speak:
muted by narcolepsy.

My mother's skin will be
[golden undertones, rosy cheeks, emerald eyes, courage and]
olive

but my father will seem

[deeply angered, deeply lost, deeply unassuming fear and]
ill-chosen

Author's Note: This was a take on the poem "if there is a heaven" by e.e. cummings.
