Gemeinheit
16. Gemeinheit 2012 encaustic and pipestem on panel. 14" X 17"

Vulgarity

piccolo, clarinet in A, violin, cello, piano

Into the bald pate of Cassander,
While he rends the air with screaming,
Blithe Pierrot, affecting airs so kind
And tender, bores with a skull drill!

Then he plugs in with his big thumb
His own genuine Turkish tobacco,
Into the bald pate of Cassander,
While he rends the air with screaming.


Then screwing his cherry pipestem
Deep into the polished baldpate
Quick at ease he puffs and draws on
Into the bald pate of Cassander.

Parodie

17. Parodie 2012 encaustic & collage on panel. 16" X 13"

Parody

piccolo, bass clarinet in A, viola, piano

Steel needles, twinkling brightly,
Stuck in her graying hair,
Sits the duenna, murmuring,
In her knee length, scarlet skirt.

She's waiting in the arbor
She loves Pierrot with aching heart -
Steel needles, twinkling brightly,
Stuck in her graying hair.

But sudden - hark - a whisper!
A windpuff titters softly;
The moon, the cruel mocker,
Is aping with its bright rays
Steel needles' wink and blink.

The Moonspot

piccolo, clarinet in Bflat,violin, cello, piano

With a spot of white, of shining moonlight
On the collar of his jet-black jacket,
So Pierrot goes walking in the evening,
Out to seek some joy and high adventure.



Sudden, in his dress something disturbs him.
He examines it-and yes, he finds there
A spot of white, of shining moonlight
On the collare of his jet-black jacket.

Hang it, he thinks; another spot of whitewash!
Whisks and whisks, yet he cannot remove it
So he goes on, full of spleen and fury,
Rubs and rubs unti the ealrly morning
A spot of white, of shinig moonlight.
