Tonal

By O. Ian Ávalos

Sonic
Phonic
Sonus
Tonal tonic.

Tonos,

Harmonie, not harmony
Armonía,
Aulos.

Bent pitch.

Microtone
Membranophone
Matrix rows all sounded at once.

Vocalion vocal vox,

Prepared piano pounded

Once,

Twice,

Thrice.

Ringing harp,
Rung rondeña tuned:

“Re”, “la”, “re”, “fa sostenido”, “si”, “mi”

Rung sustained to a fade.

The Diamond Verses

Deco District

Deco district,
Art noveau,
Fused motif.

Alameda stroll, stride, stance,
A glance at the dance of the city.

Time frozen still,
Ill will born of necessity.

Color contrast,
Stark

Abrupt.

Clash of ideals,
Juxtaposed jazz,
Textures,
Chaos…

Grandiose, epic.

Stories on the walls,
Tales of chaos screaming past, present and future.
