Ian Syder

Rookie (6 January 1958 / Cork, Ireland)


An obscure percussion beats an atonalistic tune
Bass conjoins with tenor in variations of la lune
A high C pitches itself against a low range baritone
The liberty cochophony unlocks a G sharp hushed
Silence broken, almost instantly, as if played too rushed
Sweet, yet unmelodious; familiarity crushed

What seemed first recognisable, though somewhat untoward
As yet to reach its finale; as yet to find concord
