Accordions and Hope

the accordion of fear and hope
it burns and freezes

the accordion flies aloft
it cannot rise

the accordion has nothing
it seizes the world

has neither locks nor teeth
it is in prison

it does not escape
does not live or die

the accordion finds no peace
its shadow bellows

without eyes, the accordion sees
without tongue, it speaks

the accordion loves another
it hates itself

the accordion feeds sorrow
laughs at pain

question: where does an accordion find hope?
answer: tulips instead of eyes
