Everything's off here, rhythm, tonality, melody, scale,
technique, beginning, ending, development, modality,
patterning, microtonalities, musicality, sonority,
harmonics, sympathetics, tonics, techniques, patterns,
coherency, and phrasing, enough to make it interesting

the inauthenticity of the orphaned fragment
appears from nowhere, disappears into nowhere
as in

I think that I shall never C
A letter beautiful as A B
4 it is God that made thee B
And it is I that now can C.
