Skipping BeatsThe syncSkipping Beats by orange-dan
opation of my heart,
atonal, yet soothing; a hemiola of feeling
I am reminded yet of a suite...
A movement, always rehearsed
yet the composition has taken some
time: 6/8, I wish not for cut,
key:"B Natural" I intend
(Yet I always fall flat)
Tempo: Calm; smooth
Ah yes, composure...
A tightening of embouchure,
I tune, my tone unsteady
you know, performance anxiety, deep
breathe; A crescendo, courageous, yet an unsteady tone
A blunt entry, yet the trumpets are heard.
O Fortuna! It surprises
Now, allegro, play catch up with
the audience, unseen, yet
percussion, they continue well into the
refrain, this juxtaposed silence;
D.C. al Coda. return;
theme: this is familiar; a canon?
No, even with timbre
layer, the pitch will change to a new melody:
After all, the trumpets,
they're always too loud,
Repeat: listen, harmonize, balance.
A quartet of body, mind, and soul
Where you and I will blend,
