Golden Fleece of Music Lover’s Pieces (REVISED)

Golden Fleece of Music Lover’s Pieces (REVISED)
Looking for a melody to inspire this inauspicious and
headache-marked, long-sentenced day – all without
inferring food for thought, wisdom or beauty, switch
my IPod on, blocking out gaggles of harsh laughter,
sounds which remind me of old hags

Any musical pause inflates undulating waves of
chattering voices into cacophony; seeking respite I
escape to the restaurant, find comfort in coffee with
sweetener, eschewing anything that could anger
already aching limbs

Reading ‘Music Lovers Quotations’ brings firm resolve
to feel better at any cost, order an ice-cream with lots
of chocolate sauce – but not as heavenly tasting as
envisaged, ideas from my little book seep into mind
rendering my brain incapable of settling for less than

Intoxicating melody, don ‘phones in determined quest
for the golden fleece of music lover’s pieces …

[ORIGINAL: ]

Looking for a melody to inspire this inauspicious day
marked by headache and long sentences running on
without conferring food for thought, wisdom or beauty
switching on my IPod to block harsh laughter which
suggests old hags at play

Any pause in a musical piece lets an undulating wave
of chattering voices through; seeking improvement I
went down to the restaurant to find comfort in coffee
with sweetener eschewing anything that could
inflame already aching limbs

Reading Music Lovers Quotations brings the firm resolve
to feel better at any cost and an order of ice-cream with
lots of chocolate sauce, though not tasting of heaven as
I had envisaged, ideas in my little book seep into my
mind rendering my brain incapable

Of settling for less than the most intoxicating melody,
donning earphones once again in a determined quest
for the golden fleece of music lover’s pieces …
