I hope I'm not the only one who sees your hidden words/phrases:

pee on O
le gato (the cat)
me so ... me sew fort, eh? ... me saw forty, maybe
all egg-grow (or some variation)
crush end-o
rest

I see sex and maybe some baby-making in this. Definitely brokenness and an abrupt ending. Brilliant poem, which perfectly conveys the storyline of many quickly growing, passionate relationships that have nowhere to go but into pieces and silence.

Measures, scales, technique. Two of my children are beginner piano players. And all those terms "legato, etc. really are important.

You have cleverly used them as passion building and waning. Sometimes, after a rest there is a repeat :)

It's hell dating musicians--and vice versa I'm sure for them.

YES.
Especially: rest.

Finito! Applause......

I know "piano" and crescendo" and "rest." The rest is Greek (or music) to me.

Brilliant, as ever.

The universal love song: music. The universal response: [sigh]. Thanks.
