A sharp note pierces the flow.
A jarring note, a clatter, a clash
Of lips against the reed,
In ways that were intended
To produce naught but music.
A sharp note, a note out of place,
A note never meant to be released.
A blasting note, a stabbing note,
A note that pierces through the ears
And rumbles around inside, refusing to leave.
This palpable note, this disturbing note
Lingers in the air.
Surely it has been noticed.
Surely it has ruined it all.
This one small mistake cost everything.
And yet, the orchestra continues
To play, as if nothing had happened.
Continues its golden melody,
Continues to weave the threads of instruments
Around each other in a complex web.
How can it be? This weighty, horrid mistake
Somehow seems to not be so bad after all.
Then, shall I go on?
I lift the clarinet back up to my mouth,
And continue to weave the music of life.
