Step Sequenced

FullSizeRender-60

The repeating sequence
has a fixed number of steps
that return again and again

a sixteen beat cycle, one measure of time
downbeats—1, 5, 9, 13—on the kick
backbeats—3, 7, 11, 15—on the snare
offbeats—2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16—on the hats

the groove locked
tempo steady
rhythms measured

a repeating sequence just like your life.
