While Listening to Pat Methany & Lyle Mays

I don’t dance, I tell her
Everyone dances, she says
No not me, I listen to the base
And then the horns, if there are horns
What about the music, she asks…
Doesn’t it move you?
Well sure it does, in my head, I say
But I don’t tell her
How I disconnect with my body,
How I remove all sensation from this world
And focus solely on the music
Listen to it in the center of my brain
And transfix on it, I don’t want to think
I don’t want to try to move on it
I want my energy, all my energy on the notes
I don’t tell her, because she won’t understand
Instead I just sit there, and let her dance
I love to watch her dance, she moves me
And the music, well, that’s for me to fall into.
