Something Sweet

(from “Liner Notes”)

Once struck, consider the immediate
unmentionable somewhere else.
Time plays pulse. Gasses
trumpet soul sense
often impenetrably abstract.
Little seems intact in the
unison of fragments
no matter the incredible
capable as an instrument.
He’s in & suddenly in pieces
every time at the same time.
Reasons invoke responses
is what he says. Different kinds of ways.
Chime some lucid sounds in a
different context, an incredible range
of men appear in sequence-
like effect, muscularly individual,
playing phrases rabidly. Freedom
hangs in the air. This country puts
you down for it.
