More of the sloppy wonderful this

We need more flashmobs playing Beethoven’s Ninth

More football fields filled with drummers playing  We will rock you

More Irish step dancers taking over airports, brass bands slamming Sousa

More unseen choruses sneaking into shopping malls to sing the Halleluiah Chorus

More Bohemian Rhapsody singers jumping out of vans and storefronts

More haphazard spontaneous Romeo and Juliet balcony scenes

More run  on sentences without  punctuation

More kids harmonizing to Lennon and McCartney on a street corner for loose change

More random boogie-woogie  players swapping riffs on an out of tune  library piano

More blues singers in smokey bars

More 12 year old guitar heroes

More random Bob Marley

More harmonizing grandmothers

More parents and kids banging kitchen pots with spoons

A sting of fiddles, banjoes and mandolins ripping through some jazzed up Carter family

Dancers hands on shoulders doing Zorba and shouting Opa!
More pure voiced tenors singing opera in Italian so well it makes dummies like me listen

A violin solo so heart felt it stops traffic

More poets reading loudly and drunkenly to nodding crowds

More writers finding their voice and shouting it out

More bongos and tom toms and tambourines and triangles

More not quite in tune junior high brass bands

More trying, smiling


More of all of this

More of the sloppy wonderful this

And fuck the rest of it.
