MAPPING HEAVY METAL IN THE TAPS

getting into the hot steps,
ya gotta combine the basics
to get to new improvising time steps
in the shimmering sounds
when ya start with a shiny hardwood floor
in the rhythms speaking the truth.
art and space
in the conveyances,
is to stretch things out in the taps,
and ya just gotta think like this:
each and every time
ya come to the keyboard,
it’s about mapping your heavy metal
when ya let your fingertips
feel like metal striking tips
like a tap dancer.
