a lesson from music class

original

have you ever heard of the
millennial whoop?
it is a phenomenon
in pop music
where singers
sing from the 5th degree
to the third degree
usually on an
“oh”
“ooh”
or
“yea”
once you hear it,
you can’t unhear it.
It exists in every
hit.
“california girls”
“single ladies”
“pompeii”
to name a few.
at what point does
inspiration
become
a mimic?
at what point
does originality
no longer exist?

for everything we’ve thought of
has already been done.
