Long Tones

Ichion Jobutsu!
The pure note is a pure flame:
Weak lips cannot sustain it
Impure souls cannot survive it
It burns and bursts and breaks through
The musician the Atlas that must sustain a world
As the pure note unlocks a meaning
Which connects and condenses and cradles all time and space:
You must purify yourself to attain and sustain
the pure note, the pure flame.
