An intro of drums
taps softly, softly,
cues the saxophones
floating upscale.
Hear the cello
foreshadow the violins,
a measure of rest,
then one stroke of the triangle.

It plays over and over
in my head.
This, where I first experienced music,
first heard it not as noise but peace,
first listened,
first felt,
first believed.

And I love it,
this ten-second symphony that
belongs uniquely to us.
