the hardest part

electric air
waiting, waiting, waiting.
ice cubes clink
deep breath
scan room
set lists
amps on
sticks and picks
lights dim
background music fades out
figures emerge
darkened becomes light
bass drum
cymbal strikes
heart races
first note
saxophone lifts
tempo swells
one drop
dance, shake, smile
recognition happiness
music flows
non-existent time
one person in time
eye catching
whirling twirling plume
flashbulb bright
slow down
speed up
take a break
fade in, fade out
greetings salutations
