New Piece

In Tune

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

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

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

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

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

Performance
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

Now
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

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

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