B Flat Minor

The young physicists sat around the table

Eating and talking signs and symbols

While I fussed and rumbled around

In B flat minor, a curmudgeon of sorts

Shuffling five flats up and down the path

Counting backwards in scale to the past.

 

Starting again presents an harmonic note

An A sharp and a breath and a laugh at myself

Remembering how being can equal joy times x.
