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.
