intervals

here i am

suspended here

at this anti-node

at the limits of

sensory displacement

though i remain

unaffected

by virtue of the principle

of super-position

here there is nothing

but potential

i am at the peak of my power

straining

towards that

equilibrium position



here the waves

of creation

and of chaos

move in a most

elementary

harmony

i’ve been here before

though the frequency

has changed the

tone is the same

caught in the same old

musical expression

with no sign of

dissipation

shaking with a

rhythmic nihilism

feeling neither resonance

nor fellowship

nor inspiration

i am waiting for that

final movement





so here it is

the grand finale

beyond the boundaries

of acoustic experience

oscillating with the

mounting crescendo

with all the overtones

sounding now

in a furious

dissonance

a cruel and unfettered scale

oblivious to physical

limitations

an ultimate harmony

where all the tones

sound together

with one sacred

voice



from somewhere deep within

i sense the beating

the diminishing

interference

as my natural frequency

is approximated

withered vocal chords

begin to stir

does the music i’m hearing

have an

elastic limit

somewhere beyond the

threshold of pain

one crystal clear and glorious

moment

and song itself

is shattered

and then

finally

it is finished

what a powerful thought... where creation and chaos
work in harmony

i do not understand this mystery

thank you!
