Playing around with the ideas about vibration. Loose chiastic structure.
Like a longbow arrow,
I oscillate through space,
whip left and right
to correct my course.

Like a sustained note,
I quaver flat and sharp,
tremble my way to true pitch.

Like a timid poet,
I tiptoe at the edges of clarity—

but the musician knows better
how to stay in tune
riding vibrato waves

and the archer aims
to hit the mark,
understanding how the arrow
bends around the bow.
