Paint an entire scene in a sprinkling of tightly constrained syllables.
“Crickets are chirpin’, the water is high
There’s a soft cotton dress on the line hangin’ dry”
“Time takes a cigarette
And puts it in your mouth”
“Two cars parked on the over-pass
Rocks hit the water like broken glass”
“Cheek bones like geometry and eyes like sin
And she’s sexually enlightened by Cosmopolitan”
Lots to learn from rock lyrics where the constraints of rhyme, rhythm and idiom often result in sparse beauty.
