Listening To Andre Previn 1950 Something

 

What are we doing more

Than looking for ourselves?

Borrowing our styles,

Noticing the indecisive

Movement when we write,

(an O that should go rightwards

which we suddenly write leftwards).

We oppose ourselves; impugn, negate;

We contra-go, we contra-play,

We question-learn

All in the quest for unity.

What is a question but a search?

Consistency we recognize as ‘me’

To live with and enjoy.

We keep on borrowing and using,

Sometimes jumping off

[The instrument, the job]

to head where we belong.

We’ve seen…  We’ve had enough.

The clues? The warning?

Discontent;

A looking-in;

A know-not-why;

A ‘that’s not me!’

 

What are we doing more

Than looking for

Ourselves,

For there sits our

Serenity.
