First Rehearsal

January 25, 2012
Emerging from the salty car to start again
Tired after school voices filter in
The flutes are reunited after winter hibernation
The cellist comes to have a chat
A debate starts up, geek talk, all geek talk
Doctor Who
My Little Pony
Flute, Flute, Flute
Dive in

Tap-tap, the new conductor passes out Brahms
And some orchestral jazz
The late file in, brass mostly, one flute
Silence rings, one at a time
Eight measures in, start there, it’s a start
Break time

Water, someone forgot
A flute confab, again the cello charms in
The violinist and the trombone discuss the Mahler
Back up on last hour
Trudge through Reminded
Say good bye

I like the quick, short lines. It really does feel like a rehearsal.
