Musical Stereotypes


Pop is simple form
predictably returning
the young showing off their catchy hooks

classical is complex form
elite and large-scale
snobby about its origins 

country is conservative thought
regular guy sound
ideology disguised as sentimentality 

metal is a blade sharpened
through distortion and volume
angry about its isolation 

dance is four-on-the-floor
lost in relentless moments
its beats open to all 

experimental grows wild
a weed form self-conscious
about what it wants to be.
