2.867 : 9/17/07 : Soul Bell

When did I first hear
the soul bell ringing
and when did I first
know its name
When did I first fear
it was a siren singing
and how long have I
danced around that game
I thought I’d find a gig
just ringing it all day long
I thought it would be
easy, automatic
I found it in movies
books and songs
but my own search
only came up static
there’s no soul bell
to be found in this mess
Such a typical
display of irony
I pray in my comfort
and I pray under duress
that somewhere out there
it’s still ringing for me
