Miles Turns His Back

FullSizeRender-61

 

Miles turns his back
on us because his playing
isn’t to entertain
but for himself
on music’s own terms

and tells us
not to fear mistakes
because there are none
when you’re making
something from nothing

so it’s not that he doesn’t care—
in playing the horn he cares so much
he’s already figured out what we’ll someday understand.
