Stranger than fiction

This piece by Moses Boyde (and a startling video: WARNING: flashing images) fits the contemporary scene well. Musically, I heard ways to be humans together.

Counter with jazz…
Musicians grab a lick,
listen as music knits,
seize a moment to take flight
with drum, brass, wind or voice,
all to find a thread or theme,
to take a musical moment
So, we
listen to each other,
take a space to express
our fears, our sights, our hopes
to then bump the whole together
for a moment, a minute,
an hour, a day, a year,
a lifetime.
