WHO IS MY MATCH

Who is my match?
Where is my match?
That is the catch

Where is my match
      so the fire can catch
      from a spark
      to a flash
      to a hearth
      wood burning to ash

But who is my match?
Where is my match?
That is the catch

The wood is stacked high
      row upon row
the hearth fire is set

But where
      is my match?
who
      is my match?
when
      will a spark catch
      to light up the dark?

There's wood for three years
      dry, ready to light
Where is the match?
That is the catch

My door's open wide
I wait for a spark
for the match
so the fire will catch
   the flame will take hold
   the kindling will crackle
     the wood will catch
                     fire

But where is my match?

The wood could be sold
My home could stay cold
The hearth could stay dark
      without a spark

But my door's open wide
      to welcome inside
      the one who's my match
      so the fire will catch

And then
more than one match
      to keep the fire lit
      to keep the fire stoked

for a house to live in
for a life that's given
      a spark
      to pass through its dark

Where is my match, so the fire can catch,
from a spark, to a flash, to a hearth,
wood burning to ash.
Words music, spoken word poetry.
Elsa's word pieces.
Who is my match? That is the catch..


A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.





WORDS MUSIC WORDS

Every time I'm going
into the words not knowing
what kind of thing I'm doing
what is this thing I'm making
what are these words creating

Words music unbidden
words music
in the kitchen
bedroom
at home
away
words music
moments
and more moments
in words

Words music, music words, rhythm beat,
spoken word, song,
words music, words beat,
rap poetry,
trip hip unhip unzipped
whispered, shouted, sung.

What is this?
spoken word poetry?
rap tap rhythm song?

Where do these words belong?
They don't follow song rules
so they can't be songs
Are some rap
with a rap beat?
Are some spoken word?
Some are to be sung -
country, trip hop, pop, folk, blues,
country folk, rock and roll, rap,
world beat, jazz, folk pop,
rhythm and blues.

words music words
rhythm beat strong
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words to be lived
moments

word music worlds
rhythm beat

What's cooking?
Whatever comes -
words alive
words strong
words music worlds
rhythm beat
strong
movement
words moving
words shaping
words taking
words trying
     to catch life
     to catch moments
        moments like fireflies
          one moment bright
          next moment gone
words
words and rhythm
words to be spoken
words to be sung
words, sounds, music

word music worlds

words going on and on
like the beat of a drum
word pieces
piecing together moments

word music worlds

stronger
fainter
closer

and then
can't hear
they're gone

like moments
