Racked, stretched out prone on a cross of hectic passion Large music plays you; welcomes through cruel iron Gates wit-hung, levered open Come Hector-like: Tchaikovsky battle-cries ring agonistes Horns rail out; brass supplies terse anabasis march Its deluge overwhelms, and posturing Hands caught-up, flail and flourish, beating eggs The unreasonable neuroses fester clues; derive imports Wrung dry from cornets furling sound around their fluted coils Pipeworks which ratify hard fiery petulance Disbursing from reared necks, disgorged and labyrinthine tears Hung to a broken earth-shook basso thunder On iconoclastic strings, occluding, forcing dread Coercive and unsettling: a collision: booms and freaks Pass tremors bundled shoving profligate Mad melancholia; drear property of despair
