Timpi

Timpani

Steady the beat

Avoid the roll

That ends with

A set of

Cymbals’ crash

 

Self-control

Must be a challenge

In the heat

Even the heat

Inside the

 

Body

Or maybe in-

Between

Two bodies

 

Maybe in some

Atoms of

Moments, we

Find control,

Once we

Release it

 

And yet

Restraint—take

A moment, take

A breath—is

Not a bad

Course, either

 

Listen

 

Watch and learn

The lessons

And the rhythms

Of life are

Coming at you

 

Some assembly

With discretion

Required

Before we

Let all run

And run away
