Ode for Tuba & Didgeridoo



Make a wish,
abolish it.

If we didn't need need
what would we be?

Contentment, always
a little bit disappointing.

Midas was a poet
but the world settled for gold.

Let us go, let us go,
let us not surrender to the faux.

What in us perceives light,
what in us conceives love.

What will the universe not sacrifice
to increase delicious complexity?
