	Sculpting Freedom

	Reading has become scanning
	Patterns already seen, unwilling
	To stir impulses to dwell or trim.

	But in music, condensed, uncorrupted,
	Participation soars unforced
	Floating aimlessly
	On ascending notes and streams
	Shutter through weightlessness
	In thought -- famished and free.

	Evicting out of bounds
	Sanding down the ferment of rigid might
	To the might have been's, revealed
	In shadows of forgotten trespasses
	searching for a path through the ringing sneers.

	Molding freedom in a skeletal shell
	Lighter than trembling air,
	Multi-resonant and incessant when still.
	I would rather be a composer than a poet if only
	My destiny would allow it, prayers heard, unread, unseen.

	Bedros B. Afeyan
	Palo Alto, CA
