#38 Qorah  (Maqam Nahawand)

Maqam - a set of notes, with traditions that define the relationship between them, their patterns and expression.  A musical mode.  The Maqamat (plural) are patient, inwardly drawn, they are roomy enough for poetry. We worked the concept of the give-and-take between poetry and music.


You Have Taken Too Much Upon

 You have taken too much upon yourself

everyone is holy --                          


Later You-Know-Who-Knows [YKWK]

gave me my words back


Rav lach

It’s enough for you


I wanted more

as if what I had was not



It’s never enough

there is never enough to fill a need

that isn’t physical


I give you back what you already have

remind you what you know.
