Whole
notes
dangle,
and find
their
place in the middle
of
soft chords.
They linger,
allow
a flex of tone,
and give
way to
the staccato
of eighth notes,
as
they stammer
their
way
into the elusive
beat.
We
get to
passively
fixate in this
dance,
following cadence
into
more stanzas,
with
syllables
filled with
delicate notes.

We’re
musical
in this sense,
and ever so
patiently
waiting
for the cadenza
to
hold
us
to
the very
last
note.
