Poetic Lunch Break


Miserere
Se Mercé fosse amica a’ miei disiri*
This fallen night the ancient girl
My hot agitated digits furled, and
These hands enjoined; they hailed her world.
Ave!

Yet flagrant grief incensed me.  Hence
I groped her gracious confidence–
Fessing high crimes that spurn defense.
Ave! Ave!

Silent condemnation thundered.
What whispered treaties were, were sundered
Into stupefied and wilding wonder.
O! O, ave!

Now blasted [...]

Another Virtuoso Lunch Break


Classical music isn’t the only music that the older, more mature and more traditional folks enjoy, and as long as the kids keep promoting their rock & roll bands, I’ll continue to offer alternatives for the rest of us.

Oedipus Song

Oedipus: The cresting road to Thebes I strode.
Two wounded feet my primal load.
My true father’s touch — a goad
This shepherd boy repulsed, there know’d.

Chorus of Angels: Unbound!

Oed.: The Sphinx’s tale once by me shorn,
The state ingratiated. My horn
The matrilineal sheath suborned.
Three future eclipsed stars were born.

Chor.: Unchecked!

Oed.: [...]
