Poetry is a shared experience.

As I write

The Gentle Voices of Bossa Nova

Tingle in my ears.

I am treated to the sounds

Of a dynamic jazz flute

Over a standing Bass

And some quick drum snaps.

The meandering quick

And uptempo gestures

Of the rhythmic sounds

Vibrate against my melodic spirit

And then

A slow intermission

Introducing Piano

And guitar.

Could there be more exciting variance?
