MUSIC & SOUND

Certainty is a passenger, 

resting comfortably 

on the load bearing threads; 

such a ready thing, running back 

and forth, similar to opposite, 

fixed like so many desires 

on an inward frame.

Back there in the darkness 

memory rests, 

partly converted to sound.       

At the edge of memory, 

reactions where we fall 

apart are simple 

as long as there is no bounce.
