There are changes

There are changes I would like
to make and there are those that are

made for me   pay attention to your
heart-beat which appears to happen by itself

– little breath-bows to an  unknown
somehow recognized musician –

and follow the giant skin-drum that floats
above the world to the end you have

desired for it / to that
necessary conclusion
