The Soloist

May 11, 2009
music is saying
life ain’t so bad
I’m not interested in Mozart as an obituary
but as a spirit
he wipes the pidgeon shit from his brow
and he’s there, green,
as green and real as any tree.
Here in this tunnel, it seems somehow
orchestral, the cacophany,
I am part of the music of the city – yes –
but schizophrenically –
in music I am lucid, I am syntax, semantics,
in music I am saying
life ain’t so bad.
