Out of Step
There was trick we used in marching band
to get back in step.
It took some practice, especially if
We were playing a tune at the time.
Far harder is finding the footwork
to get back in step with you,
difficulty magnified by rarity
discomfort multiplied by contrast
to our normal synchronicity,
despite agreeing that agreement isn’t constant
different drummers are playing for us.
