Stuart Rawlinson #28 - Jogging to Reich

Early this morning
As traffic scraped the roads
Traffic helicopters filled
The quiet sky
I ran with Steve Reich

Music For 18 Musicians
Imperial to metric and back
Section I caught my breath
Early. Head shaking
Mechanically in time

Section II I skipped
Every fifth step
I thought, but the time
Signatures jolted me
Staccato flat feet

I got as far as Section IIIA
When my knees collided
Ankles together
At least my wrists hit
The ground in perfect sync

  1. It's been happening to me, i've had to dump the music, Cream and Aretha Franklin have me going too fast, and I end up aching all over.
