Dreamed 2013/7/19 by Wayan
At the party looms a magnetic tall
brown bag o' bones. He played b-ball
but now he coaches lives. He calls
himself "The Anti-Saboteur",
but you address his navel otherly:
you say "sir".
He demos antisabo. I volunteer, along
With two brave women ready to be wrong.
Observes us flounder to the brink of song,
math and flirting (skills we long to master)--
flounder till disaster.
"Seek slips: self-trip, self-fall."
But under his clear scrutiny, all
we do is picture crimes unreal!
"You each lack an essential skill
circumstance or tool.
"Players need strong hands, and
math needs peace and quiet, and
girls need guys, not slimy eels.
Auto-condemnation is not cool.
Defaultin' to self-doubt reveals
a therapizin' fool."
NOTES IN THE MORNING
- Lanky mentor looked like the lead singer of Debo, a Ethiopian band I just saw. Intricate beats--6/4, Malagasy sliptime, 5/4! So I bet he means mastering hard music.
- No sabotage, just lack tools/skills: my friend Cory said "Your band sabotages itself--the Krelkins never record." I argued "Originals are harder than covers, and our songs are complex. Most aren't recordable yet." Today we finally managed Do What You Love's fast jumps from 3/4 to 4/4 swing while singing three-part harmony; then in Saboteur I faked a chorus of saxes on keyboard while lead-singing a contrasting rhythm. She dismissed all that. The dream disagrees.
- Therapizin' fool: me, for years. Doctors told me my flare-ups of shakes and pain must be stress or a phobia. "See a therapist." I did. Ow. Then I took antibiotics--my joint pain, coordination and stress-tolerance abruptly improved. I had Lyme!
- ACTION: Cory's doubts echo years of psychologizin' fools. Not self-sabotage! My music's hard to play even without a neurological illness. So take those antibiotic herbs, and hire some session players, not a shrink.
