Conductor

painting sound
from the air
as a sweep of his arm lifts the violins over our heads
and his wrist drops cello into our laps
as the flutes drift in between his shoulder arcs
and a punch
lands the bass drum – bu-Bum
oboe is plucked up by his fingers as his head nods the violas closer
closer
and he sinks down into the quiet notes
cresCENDO
he stands tip-toe
drawing in the choir

.

close your eyes and still, his conducting dance
so vividly visible, wrapped in the notes, weaving into your soul
