Musical Notes 1

Unsatisfied with this history lesson
turn for the worse
stuck on the skyway again
with recurring dreams
of a shaggy three-headed orchestra
do you remember?
from whose foaming mania
we deciphered regal symphonies
and ghost written autobiographies
while lamenting the inevitable fall
of those sonic philosopher kings
who crawled from the moss laden architecture
of the new old republic
murmuring dream commands
to the coolest nerds on the block
like those mild-mannered maniacs
who captured a New York pier
as Verdi cried beneath nameless silhouettes
of eager open windows
I was there
do you remember?
for the magnificent arrival
of a disintegrating memory
recalled only upon realization
that we left a perfectly good century unfinished
