In the beginning was the word…but in the end?

I heard this melody
        that suggested a now … a next Tuesday
                                                        or possibly a tomorrow
                 all at once        yet retained
                       perfect coherence –
                                  maintained            rainbows of mood
                         with no internal contradiction

                                I have heard music
                    that could embrace tenderly
            while rousing vehemently
                       yet showed no symptoms
          of coercion          imposition
                       or capitulation

         I have felt sequences of sounds
               so      far       beyond the tramping
                   syntactical   army
                           of verbal language
          [which does seem at times
                       to positively invite opposition
              and contradiction]
                                     that I think
         in my next incarnation
                          I’d like to be a songbird
