The Concert

The slight nervousness
seeking allocated seats
seeking for known faces in the crowd
seeking for calm before the storm

The programme dims
auditorium lighting
conversations, pins dropping
vestiges of footfall

The roar of adulation
lifting people from their seats
raising their arms in adoration
satisfying their expectations

The first chord strikes
another explosion of elation
another wave of worship
another spike in audience adrenalin

The measure of music
halts chronology
stretches eternity
present and future united

The final encore brings
the thunderclap of applause
the exodus to the carpark
the sigh of fulfilment
the vacuum of insatiable desire
