Humming Sorrow

(Replaces ‘a’ with ‘q’) 
Seeping smogged smithereens in mqrrows, 
Cqllous pqin hums hymnql sorrow:
Junk jive embroidered with crescendoes, 
Rough rhythms in reefs grow
Qs the offshoot red glow. 

Eqrs fqr qwqy heqrd
The music crescendoes bled. 
Into pity, heqrts moved. 
Sixth octqve,  notes improved. 

Teqrs trqiling trqcks, 
Pqin pqsting pqts, 
Music melting mqss. 

Music fqdes. 
Then cqme,
