and – or

“and” – the quality of having
“or” – the quality of not-having

a note struck or plucked,
blown or sung…

having sound: hearing
having context: recognizing
having start: grasping
having finish: letting-go

a note giving way to silence
which gives way to another note

the second encircling the first,
sound gives up a moment,
together apart

peak and/or valley
over and/or under
light and/or dark
hot and/or cold

“and” the Silence has All
“or” the Silent has Nothing
