A morose ballad.

A morose ballad.
A single cello mournfully plays.
Maximizing each long slow bow stroke.
This music, is pretentious
Simple chaos;
This is not for the meek.
Embrace dissonance,
Embrace change,
Embrace the music.
Indulge in each musical curve.
Get lost in the melodies.
Bend the boundaries of the beat
Dance in-between meaningless means.
Take an oath to the dance of death.
