confined to a single

confined to a single
measure, a fragment
of notes seldom
appreciate the longer
phrase they make –
an eighth note three
measures away
is always
much more
of an eighth note,
and the whole
note over there
wears his fermata
with such
generous aplomb.
as the sentiment goes,
the notes are always
achingly sweeter
on the other side
.
