i've never fallen in love with a word.
to me, music is all in the combination.
the arrangement of sound and spirit and image.
when the mixture is just right,
leave things just as they are.
refuse to add even a single note.
then cut fat from the front.
yes, trim and nudge and slash both sides
until all that remains is a quiet, infinite gesture.
until all that remains is
the bird that tried to race the rain.
