Ludwig’s Shadow

They fought to feel

The sound

Until their sanity


As if all hope of being understood

Is driven off

By 88 keys

And distant modulation

Their voices now the vibration

Of hammers

On strings

Da da dadada da

Launching them into society

Aristocratic play things


A quickened


Of needing

To say something

In an 8 bar phrase

A sforzando stands

Marks the dynamic difference

Between you and me

Everyone loves to watch a madman

At work
