In Between
In Between

I live in the space between sound

I live where you can’t hear the sound of your heart beat
I live in pause and rest

I live between the staccato
Between the very legato

I live in the place after inhalation
Before exhalation

I live between the notes you don’t listen for
The corners you ignored when you thought you were listening to the melody
I live between the movements of a symphony

I live between flick and swish
Above air and under ground
I am everything you cannot hear

Under the air inside your flute
Between the hit of the hammers
I dance over your strings

I live where you cannot find me.
