Musical Lines

Translate the sense
of indecision
the composer feels
when beginning

you’ll recognize
that no place sounds
like the right way to start

so how to know
that chosen options
will set a tuneful path

paved by intentions
not random timbres

that if we begin here
we won’t box ourselves in

like notes on the stave
a cage of pitches
predictable
and measured by bar lines.
