What music do you listen to?
When people ask me, “What music do you listen to?”
I want to say,
“Have you ever heard a piano,
over sparkling drinking and
No, not that fast piano, or that happy piano,
a walk down a nighttime street,
or a lazy morning,
or a breeze,
or a thought,
but a lost one. Not found quite yet.
There’s still some mystery in it.
That’s my favorite.”
