Dictation in Reverse

Music needs memory

a horizontal plane, current to a moment.

Chance is not surprise.   When I ask

for it when I ask I, I ask for

am lessened.  The gift is in(eff)ability

prior to the gift. 

So asking ruins music.

Hearing music saves it from itself

I am a speck.  So are the specks

passing as notes on a page

is never conscious.  If a page

is ever conscious it is not a page and dies.
