A New Year's Present

(Sylvester for my European readers)

My response in verse after attending an excellent performance of Varese's Ameriques at UC Berkeley a couple years ago.

Some devastating sadness today.

So sad
   terrible to name
   such sweeping vengeance
    at the silent audience after Varese
    I wanted to drill thru their cotton-compacted ears to let the music in - though to hear not
is I suppose
    punishment enough
