Definition of Art

Is the bird the music or
the music the bird?
Gliding along the notes
or singing along the ripples?
Transmission goes from double to one
And representation dissolves.
And I absorb a third essence,
Not the sum of the two.

[Written after listening to The Swan by Camille Saint-Saëns.]
