The Music Will Save

Snow covers the ground
Christmas light sparkle all 'round
In the museum room for visitors
There, the only child,
Seated, engages with the stereo.
A wall of sound surrounds him
Like a protective force-field
That keeps the adopters in
Their room.
Away from the child.
A child alone.
