Cosmic Music

Cerebral

Grooves, niches,

Spaces; the arena for

Synaptic sparking

of axons and dendrites

into threads

Called memories.

Consider:

Each electric thread

Twangs distinctly.

Visual

Aural

Gustatory

Somatosensational

Olfactory

Sixth sensual,

And many other*

Aspects;

Yet together,

The threads

Build a

tone, unique

In time

And space.

Repetition in other

Times and spaces

Build chords.

~ ~ ~

Tones emerge

Singly, freed

From the Mysterious Mother,

Into the realm of manifestation.

Time suspends them.

When there are enough,

Some semblance of

A tune may emerge;

A melody perhaps,

Perhaps only disjointed

Cacophony

That grates.

~ ~ ~

Where are tones kept?

Numbered,

in a compartmentalized cabinet?

Jumbled in the junk drawer?

Tied with duct tape,

In the basement?

Sealed in a tomb?

Or just out there?

~ ~ ~

What calls tones in — or out —

to play?

What makes them want

To play

With others, our others

And others’?

Dependence?

Dysfunction?

Compulsion?

Repulsion?

Tones, seeking

Resonance

Of chords?

Then melodies?

~ ~ ~

How do chords

Compose a melody?

What genre?

~ ~ ~

How does a solo artist

Play a duet?

How does One

Join the Cosmic Band?
