chords..obsessions

I don’t know if I’ve published this in the blog yet. But with all this twitter-talk of theory, and with the lack of control I’ve had over my writing, and reading, and playing, and thinking lately – it’s worth another go.

Obsession
has turned the subtle
into gauzy transparency
Ideally,
understanding my perception
would bring nothing
but release

But fear of the
strange convention
time and tradition
will make dreams I have
of taking a taste
(of a something
that maybe should not
go to waste)
-it will twist fading mysteries
and warm sharp intensities
into tawdry insanities
held by the unchaste

So I will be vague
-as vague as a chord
that changes its third at its whim.
It’s not meant to do this!
It should follow the rules!
But obsession itself is my lover..
and I remain one of its fools.
