That beautiful melody? It is already within us
Tim was sorting through his compositions

we need to find a way to bring it closer

to brush our end against its end, but we must remain

and regardless if I am satisfied with it
I have to abide by the metronome

I want to study piano because in doing so I will destroy

my discreteness. One is always concerned with one’s discreteness

this tiresome harangue of mine, would you believe me
just as I was reaching the terminus or whatever point

in the mind that receives it. Listen to this, Tim said

playing nothing. Do you hear what I hear

I would have to do it myself
with my own hands, Tim continued,

sometimes I am struck, my chair a closer

companion than anyone I know.
