I remembered what I was going to say

There was a moment that dripped like a faucet
held back from the torrent by a hack of black tape
but the black tape could not hold the wet syllables
at bay within this white chipped porcelain heaven.

Then I remembered the cause of the chipping now-
a mad little drummer with aluminum practice sticks
driving a whiskey fueled paradiddle into the night
until the sleek white porcelain could take no more.

And the chipping became a shattering crescendo
where I found my god as we wrestled to the floor.

  1. The paradiddle families and variations can be combined
    in lots of interesting ways to achieve different effects,
    whether on a single snare drum, multiple tenor drums,
    or a drum set.or a drum set.
