harmony of the spheres

unity and harmony are not the same thing.
i just wanted to be clear about that.
we can speak at the same time, but that is not a conversation .
it is listening without any sense of beauty –
just point and counterpoint.

i spend my days and nights measuring words.
one speaks, and they insert themselves
into the equation, another element; a hollow
agreement – concessions to the argument
that all things are good in proportion.

they are not. their effects ripple through the aether
like a song as it makes its way through the body.

the sky is filled with sound – not unlike a song –
i just don’t know – or perhaps i’ve forgotten – the melody.
