Mahler and Freud Meet in Leiden I:II:1 – Nearing the Apex of Midnight

Mahler and Freud Meet in Leiden, Part One, II:1

.

I am wakened to stumble

Into the Maritime thunderstorm

Of my aging,

Albrecht Durer at 28Lightning flashing through the blinds,

Falling water smashing at the house.

I picture Dürer in self-portrait

With paper almost too wet

To sketch on. Cantata strains

Of Liebster Jesu, mein Verlangen

Play very far away

Upon the pace of short sacred chords

In the background of my mind.

I know Liù is dead.
