trembling hands
mind aflame
aqua starved goldfish mouth gasping
open close open close –
nothing to offer
body pulsating through sensation warps
arrhythmically cueing
the heart’s metronome
con fuoco .. allfrettando agitato – caesura!
accelerando – allegro agitato – caesura!
… moderato … ritardando …
… lento… lento…

Notice to performers:
Until all unruly cacophonic instruments
agree to play from the same page
this conductor is
doing nothing …
