let me float in the seas above
Flute and Alto Saxophone
Duration: 4-5 minutes
In a rejection of processing recent horrors, my mind has been visiting other lands. I float away— thoughts and ears muffled even as shocks ring through.
After titling the piece, I serendipitously encountered Maya Angelou's poem Woman Work:
"Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
'Til I can rest again."
