about

Music & Words

I see it unadorned
I hear it sung from whispered lips
Sometimes soaring
Sometimes flat
I see it like life not like art
I want it to be discovered by an alien
Who does not know what it lacks
I want it to be amateurish
Who gets the occasional complimentary
I want it asymmetrical and atypical
I see it as unique
An example only of itself
I don’t want it to be tasteful
I want it to be graceful
I don’t mind if you only listen for a passing moment
As long as you listen in
& acknowledge that a man was here
Who’d live to tell a tale
A tale different to any other
No better, but just so no lesser
Don’t doubt it
Trust what you hear
Like you do
When you eavesdrop on a stranger
