I almost forgot my arpeggios in my endless
piling of clothing, toiletries, work papers, why
is it never easier for me, why not as easy
as an arpeggio gliding effortlessly up the scales,
smoothly transitioning between registers,
the ear soothing to the key changes, from
major to minor, from fortissimo to pianissimo.
i'll bring them with me in hopes of smooth
and effortless travels.
