No. 11.                    Tunes

They say that boybands play three chords in front of 10,000 people while

jazzmen play 10,000 chords in front of three people.




The universe secretes all tones

from darkest noise to white

in one harmonic iceberg

of frozen sound and light.



Only warmth of feeling

And fingers with a mind

can somehow melt the ice a bit

and shape a tune sublime.
