7/4 Time

Published July 2, 2016 in Mickey - 0 Comments

Seven 4 Time
One measure of 4/4 followed by one of 3/4.

The beat missing creates a loping anticipation.

It’s oddly natural and easy to feel.

Maybe it comes from our ancient past.

When we ran through the fields to keep the beat.

Jogging with a cardiac rhythm.

Hearing the drums beating
in the wind of our breath.

Mickey’s at it again, dreaming about music and meter.

It’s what brings him joy.

And joy’s been a bit sparse as of late.
