She starts alarm clock with panache:
little electronic timer –
insistently and incessantly,
such that one wants to stamp on it,
to shut it up immediately,
this disturbing rude imposter
which intrudes on peaceful slumber.
Now comes the clever bit:
taking piccolo to her lips,
a mischievous glint in her eye,
she blends these shrill percussive sounds,
at first in low and mournful space,
then climbing by octaves, one and two.
The syncopations, split with rests,
allow the timer to pierce through,
still incessant, but tempered
by the music’s overlay,
which relentlessly gathers pace.
At last she silences the timer,
with deft flourish. This fleeting piece
to have lasted for ever.
Briefly, she proceeds alone,
ascending rapidly – assails
the ears with one last
screeching staccato spit.
