the lone note

The lone note / hangs in the air

It dissatisfies
It remains out of sequence

Some of the other notes
Shun it / shame it

It displeases
It will not combine

Some of the the other notes
Hate it / want it destroyed

Unmelodious / unharmonious
It goes against all musicality

The lone note continues
Making its sound

More primal than music
Being

That the other notes can’t hear

This poem was written to the day ten prompt to write a lone poem at Poetic Asides.
