“Because music, as an art form is essentially playful.”   – Alan Watts, Life is Not a Journey

sliding arms and gesturing
with the classics –

connect the passing pauses,
bubbling in scaling riffs

as a refrain tunes in. anything works
but music, we don’t work music;

we imagine them. powerful slurs
like childish autumn leaves and

old souls dancing. i have always liked
seeing cotton chords hanging

beneath Apollo, spilling
moments all over the stage floor

slipping into its stream – and still,
relive a conductor’s final touch

that misplaces with purpose the notes
into its primary taste, sweeter than ever.
