Poco a poco by Sofia Kioroglou

Poco a poco

Following a fallow writing period,
Ideas are now raining down on my head
       rat-a-tat, 
                       rat-a-tat,
                                      poco a poco

Like machine gun 
In Sectional variations
Monophonic in texture

Pen scribbling with staccato accuracy
Trailing its nib in highfalutin octaves
                          Hither and thither, 
                                                        to and fro
                                                                         and all over the place

With terraced dynamics
Through-composed like ballads
Waltzing around the dance floor of my skull
