The Horn

hornedear

 

Horn: A sharp protrusion. A warning. A pointed optimism for victory. The sound is of a dozen defenses. Defenses from a louder brass band.

Horn: A sound the color of brass. A brassy texture of volume. Loud space funneling forward. Inward. A noise channel. A channel engulfed by the volume. The volume of something filled.

    • Yup. It also depicts the give/take of a relationship in the context of sound. A horn can be used as a proud form of attention seeking or an alarm to warn off danger. Both are loud, but one draws you forward, while the other pushes you away.

      • Ah. Much more profound with deeper layers. Love it. To read it without any intuition, would seem random ramblings of a lost soul. But, it is more a poetry of a self-aware soul to me. The internal and external effects of one action, the many perceptions of one object. Love how you give multiple dimensions to objective metaphors!

  1. Loved the lines, “A sound the color of brass. A brassy texture of volume.” They have an unusual richness to them that I don’t often see.
