I Don’t Know What it Is


.
I’m listening to something I don’t know what it is

but it’s Chopin and Alexa provided it
and it’s of the moment so I’m thinking
Alexa knows more than I do of what is

what it is is bell sounds, not bells really
but the next best thing Chopin could
come up with to be played on this instrument
which sounds belllike but which again
I admit I don’t know what it is

despite

thinking I’m a poet
and good with words you’d think
I’d have worked out all that before
committing it to a page

but it’s magical as I sit here
among Chopin’s frequencies
listening
applying him to the days doing
wondering what

?

Alexa again

Ahmad Jamal has to do with
this moment of angst

?
