my mind is
a big hunk of irrevocable nothing which touch and taste and smell

nevertheless i
feel that i cleverly am being altered that i slightly am becoming
something a little different, in fact
myself
Hereupon helpless i utter lilac shrieks and scarlet bellowings.

I love the cummings quote. I also love harps! (Not too fond of swords, though.) ;-) Your musical endeavors have my deepest respect, you who are both artist and artisan.

Thank you, I especially love it when people recognise and respect the artisan part of the picture. I keep repeating that, at the professional level, talent is a given. After that cut, it's the worker bees who keep the hive buzzing.
