The Music
It is a pompous September morning
The music continues unabated
in the orchestra hall
with all glitters and glamours,
mellowing colours,
sounds and motions.
I don’t just understand
why I falter suddenly
when the music gathers momentum.
And then…
and then the gradual diversions
slowly dwindle
the sanguine experience
of the genuine percipient ones.
Why do you stand here?
I have already given you word
to meet at the appointed hour
behind the orchestra hall.
