New Piece

In Tune

I hear unified voices
Multiple parts
Highs, Mids, Lows
In betweens
Swingin’ low

Of several twisted voices
Divisive parts
Dissonance sustained
Non-melodic 7ths
On top of inaudible 9ths
Modulation, a third time

Many scores on sheets
Songs endless
Until yesteryear
Twisted notes
Off pitch
And not caring

Dug up beautiful songs
Of stories, of cultures, of knowledge
Perfectly written
Perfectly read
Perfectly sung
Perfectly pitched

All choir members align
Each section in effect
Then peeps of sounds
Twisted notes again
The majority looks around
To hear strange sound

I heard unified voices
But Hebrew interjected
As Spirit Voices sang
Further disruption by Islam
With a Christian and Hindu harmonic
Causing ears to bleed

The Director ponders
The way to unify voices
Ancestors rolling over a million times
Disturbed by the sounds that resonate
Bursting tears, bursting hearts
They found the answer

From the written chord progression
Into a nonsensical signature
Only ghosts knowing the intended key
A chicken’s head is cut
Blood signaling mediation

Voices from the graves
Meeting the Director
Knowing the Songs
Forgetting the wrong notes
Only singing the right notes
The Songs of Spirit
