Command the Smart Speaker to channel.
Six a.m. repetitive
rhythm must lead somewhere —
vitamins, made bed, breakfast,
dress for an unpredictable world.
Focus on heartbeat.
Breathe instrumental almost-melodies.
Percussion wants moving,
harmonizing more than easy clichés.
One piece reminds you that
you always wanted to tap dance but
you’d settle for a keyboard sound that can —
an alternative technique.
It’s never as simple as it sounds.
Accompaniment, keys, possibilities.
Keep listening for reason or Skill
or useful information once
a new programmable hour begins.
