Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor/Robert Tiso, Glass Harp


Half past love’s labor lost
on a melting watch’s
persistent memory,

half past the half life
of the lithium chorus
singing out the lauds and matins

like a bach fugue
played on water harmonica
and glockenspiel,

Lachesis measures out the bolt
laced like a suture
through the wounded heart—

a live wire—
thread of lightning
whipcracking the air

from the coil
to Tesla’s outstretched hand
as he allows his body

to be crucified by light
in this passion play
of Dr. Electric.

“therefore I will wail and howl,
I will go stripped and naked:
I will make a wailing
like the dragons,
and mourning as the owls”

  1. Not lost. Persistent wail & hOwl, belted unbolted dragging on& on bursting the seems & sposes

  2. I seem to remember that D-minor is the
    natural tone of the body of mass
    called Earth. But it has always been
    my fave classical key.

  3. You been gone FB long time, now all gone. I read you here now. OK?
