Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Every note and placement,
Where they are heard...
Is given specific meaning,
With an applied definition.
The structure and rhythm given,
Has to be felt as customized...
For the one perceiving what is done,
Comes to them as personalized.
And whether accepted,
To have no depth expressed...
One suddenly begins a journey,
Unlike any other and unexpected.
