Poets move from the chest. Poets close their eyes when they sing. Poets tend toward the opaque. Poets are red. Poets think in pictures. Poets begin from above. Meaning is central for the poet. Poets create for a greater poetry. The poetry mortals can only kiss but never hold. Composers move from the head or feet, as a rule. Composers say exactly what they mean. Composers are blue. Composers don’t aim to touch the untouchable, although they ideally do so. Composers think spatially: in shapes and figures; maybe places at maximum fluff. Composers can be formalists. Composers build concretely, tangibly––from the foundation up. Meaning is considered last by the composer. Crucially, in their work, they are serving the demands of the instrument and the composition.
