		LA VALSE, NI NOBLE, NI SENTIMENTALE


	Waltz or pass a cradling caress
	Frown or prance, test in tenses past
	Thickest orchestral glorying
	Ghosts of wars transmigrant memes
	Customs undressed, immolated, effaced
	Magical stitches, maddening wistful douleurs
	Panic pickled, swirling hemorrhaging
	Harmonic goose steps, stiffened spines
	Smiling boots glistening in Prussian violins
	Recidivist frivolity, for a grand dance or grosse pause
	Perturbed, blind soldiers hobbling past stretchers
	Kicking the contours, counting the dead

	Mustard gains
		   Acid gargles
			   Yellow vomit
					Mass graves

	Worlds of war wedded arms merchants
	Virgin tails plucked from the sky
	Moulins Rouges or pink butterfly
	Dreams and screams in pews and trenches
	Scar fountains, penny operas
	Empires somnambulant, plagued and black
	Genocidal vengeance sputtering us all
	In Faustian borrowed beard disguises drenched
	In noisy endless macabre rising madness


	Bedros Afeyan
	Davies Symphony Hall
	With Ravel, 2-28-2009
