Listening to John Adams’ Common Tones in Simple Time
while driving to work

As I drive,

         the music whispers

“Make no pictures of me; draw image

         no memories from my well:

be a streambed

         and no more,

that I may flow along

         your heart

as mottled stone.”

Poor Ludwig took a saw
to his piano’s legs to feel
it vibrate thru the floor:
Muse, what stroke and angle
to sharpen insight’s tooth?
