Never look further than the next bar

ignore the runs of thirty-second notes
four bars ahead, breathe into
that single high C, letting the
vibrato ring in the air and fade,
rest during four counts and only,
only then prepare your lips,
your psyche, your lungs for
that run of thirty-second notes,
let the breath carry you forward,
watch the energy wash over the
audience and gently dissipate,
this is the ocean of music.
