Dean's Daily Poem
Art by Dean Blehert
|The tiny screen says this and that,
Flows in my eyes and turns to fat.
It's deep as a magician's hat--
How could I bulge from something flat?
[Note: Are images from a flat screen fattening? I think it's the bowl games, by which I mean the games of nibbing stuff from bowls as I watch
The elevator fills up
with cheery music
and dull backgound
I like Bach's music,
but the best part
is the background universe.
[Note: These last two offer twists on the notion "background music"--what makes it "background" and something else "foreground"? The
elevator poem is pretty obvious, I think. Perhaps "cheery" should be "cheesy," since it's often mediocre, limp instrumental versions of lively
songs rendered by someone's 10,000 slack strings, superficially cheerful, but basically music designed not to jar anyone's hangover.
(Which reminds me that Handel, a German composer, Bach's contemporary, wrote music for the court in England, a dynasty from Hanover,
in Germany. No doubt he didn't want his music to upset the Georges or jar anyone's Hanover.)
(That's correct, the English royalty--which, during 20th century wars with German cousins, changed it's name from Hanover and it's longer
1901-1917 name, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (a larger section of Germany), to "Windsor"--that dynasty is from Germany. For a couple
generations of Georges the kings spoke German, not English, and until they ran out of male heirs to the throne, they remained the rulers of
Hanover. The laws in Hanover required a male ruler. The laws of England did not, and England's most distinguished and long-lived
monarchs have been women--the two Elizabeths and Victoria. It's the males of the dynasty who've been more likely to die nasty.)
The Bach poem is trickier: It's not just that Bach (and some other composers) are so powerful that they demand "foreground" billing. It's
also two other factors: The first is that Bach is kind of annoying if you don't pay attention. Usually I'd prefer silence to background Bach,
especially one of his complex fugues, musical devices of torture if you don't engage with them. The trick is to pick out a theme and align
other themes and developments to that theme and then KEEP UP, and if you do that (and it's a bit like keeping up with varied and
syncopated movements of tall grass in a breeze), it does something to your preception of time and motion, so that the universe starts to
dance. The trees are moving to the music, and even star-twinkle seems to dig it.
Lots of music has this capability--maybe ANY music, since it's really OUR capability, music being a facilitator. But some music seems to
demand it, like Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Beethoven's Late String Quartets, Bartok's String Quartet's 3 thru 6...and if you can
do this yourself with no music (and no drug), but just your own intention, if you can make the universe dance (and you CAN), Bach won't
object, and Time will have no dominion. You'll be the "different drummer" to which your universe moves.
If you depend on someone else's music for your time, that's Bachwards, and may lead to thirst when the pump don't work cause the vandals
stole the Handel. (There's a bit of Bob Dylan Haydn in that last sentence.)]
