“Music is the outburst of the soul”
~ Fredrick Delius ~
Do you see music...
in the glitter of star-spangled
gum portrait against tar?
in the limp mottled banana skin
tousled without care nor will?
on silver barrels settled by glass panels
of Royal Northern College of Music
I wonder at the tales of
thick folded fingers
gripping steely steering wheels...
“Music has to breathe and sweat,
you have to play to live” – this James Brown
inscription sprawled around
swims along the tide
of my mental Club Phoenix.
