                   Fanfar from Afar
              (to  Dimitiri Shostakovich)

	With focused efforts
	In language, resonances
	Strung are left unsaid.

	Vulgar, profane friction
	Strings to bows
	Framed in fame,
	Fancy feet'n rags

	Nomadic notes prance
	Not free emergent joy
	But dominant, dormant lament
	Eight deranged drops of soviet blood
	Immersed in Jewish songs
	Cycled in ravenous applause
	Babiyar, bulbs strung high
	To brandish love's triumph
	Over a Georgian Tzar.

	Stale in rhetoric
	Bear in a sterling grave
	Manuscripts march in man's bugle
	Symphony to war and blight.
