The Conductor

confident with your back to the audience.
tremelo strings begin with your gesturing wrist.
start the orchestra slow with an elegant aire,
then a circular sweep crecendoing swell.
leo slatkin, dohnanyi, previne, depaur

your arms are calling out,
they wave like a swarm of sound.
you pull the sound from scores of notes,
you step the stage and take control.

you’re conducting ver’ese in a moment of silence.
your body directs a pulse of wind.
von karajan, hampton, menuhin, levine

your arms are calling out,
they wave like a swarm of sound.
you pull the sound from scores of notes,
you step the stage and take control.

(The Faint, The Conductor)
