duets with other poets – grittykitchen dénoûment


(this is the final movement of what i call a ‘poetic symphony.’ we recommend that serious readers/followers now go back and read the entire ‘duet’ at one go much as one listens to a Mahler symphony from the first note to the final cadence without distraction.  ^^~~~~)

dénoûment

(Euphoric)

Euphoric.

we weep silver tears of compassion sweeter harmonics

we huilen zilveren tranen van mededogen zoeter harmonischen

nous pleurer des larmes argent des harmoniques plus doux de compassion 

Never on schedule, but always on time.

between yesterdays and tomorrows all candies have magicke

tussen gisteren en morgen hebben alles snoepjes magie 

entre hier et demain tous les deux bonbons ont magie 

word is bond

logos is truth is transgressive is beauty is love

logos is waarheid is transgressieve is schoonheid is liefde

logos est vérité est transgressive est beauté est amour

as if struck by lightning softly gently

speaking your tongue now arching your back so

ecstasy comes in many forms proclaiming

 ‘freedom is chosen bondage’ says saint paul

paulus zegt ‘vrijheid is slavernij gekozen’

« liberté est choisie bondage » a dit saint paul

ecstasy comes in many forms proclaiming

speaking your tongue now arching our backs so

as if struck by lightning softly gently chanting 

shanti shanti shanti

** Note : In the tradtion of T.S.Eliot, I am not fond of footnotes: Discovering the allusions is at least half the fun we thinks.  However, the allusion in the dedication is sufficiently esoteric to justify an explanation: It is to both a work of art and a real person.  The book is, “The Master and Margarita,” by Mikhail Bulgakov.  My own maestro, Sergei Mihailoff introduced me to Russian Literature when I was not yet a teenager.  It has been a life-long love affair.  The Ukranian Muse to whom this pas de deux is dedicated is, Лecя Пeпyk, the margarita who redeems her master (an inversion of the myth of Orpheus & Eurydice).
