Style is Sound

Style is sound.
When you find it,
you’ve been found.
Presence has a meter
and a melody inimitably
tied to form, your form.
The deaf can hear it best.
They notate lyrical
vibrations in a special clef
which locates and records
the differences in silences
the hearing know as “rests” –
far more exquisitely aligned
with mind than sounds
the hearing can discern

which churn up from
a far less intricately
nuanced source.
Hearing has its
pleasures too,
of course.

But sound itself
is self. Your
sound is you.
Guy plays Bach
