Some scarce time for some doubts.
Some bits of August in unequal times.
A handshift, a position,
A leap, an emotion,
And the doubt of a first of August changes the harmonic lighting.
To point with the bow the elastic « alien » note.
It’s pinching, it’s crossing and wiggling.
It must be waited for, it likes to be waited for, and to be heard.
A dance, maybe a Pas de deux,
A cadenza actually to feel better.
Nine quavers dance irregularly
In a disagreement bowed to mark the beat.
It’s a no ! Two and three mixing up
To serve better the joys and quarrels
Of the bouncing fingers, shuffling in the air
And of a tight bow crossing the sword.
The fight occurs and contains itself
In a doubt of a third of August.
