What does your music sound like?

I get that question from people who meet me and don’t know anything about my music. Oh it is an awkward thing to answer. I probably say it is emotional, I write about things that upset me, often in the outer world but sometimes the inner world. In the eyes of whoever I am answering I never sense I helped them much by answering that way. I like the border guards, they always ask,

“what kinda music is it?”

“easy listening.”

they don’t laugh. i wish they would. they feel like i’m stupid. fine with me.
