I would like to sing

and let a box capture my voice

I would like to dance

and let a plastic ballerina follow my movements

even if it is never ending

and repetition

it is beautiful

isn't that a good thing?


is it so irrational

to capture the sound

of rain

in little plastic beads

because it makes me dance

and it's only flaw is the lack of clouds

(but the cloud is me

creating the rain)


who could argue

that an arrangment

of seventy-six inches and eighty-eight keys

was not made

to spark the laughter in a young child's mind

and fists of solid steel

pound those keys

when the thunder rolls in
