Precise Percussion

Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion
Love to hear it

Low Brass

Because you know I’m all about that bass,
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, no treble
I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass

Ode to the flute

A man sings
by opening his
mouth a man
sings by opening
his lungs by
turning himself into air
a flute can
be made of a man
nothing is explained
a flute lays
on its side
and prays a wind
might enter it
and make of it
at least
a small final song

Matthew Zapruder

With Trumpet and Drum

“With big tin trumpet and little red drum,
Marching like soldiers, the children come!
It ‘s this way and that way they circle and file—
My! but that music of theirs is fine!
This way and that way, and after a while
They march straight into this heart of mine!
A sturdy old heart, but it has to succumb
To the blare of that trumpet and beat of that drum!”

Eugene Fields
