Death In Time: A Film About Puccini 1998


      Death In Time: A Film About Puccini

Death provokes. It makes me cry,

Tears involuntary.

Puccini dies. It’s just a film.

I’m shown what they will have me shown:

Magic’s throne,

Sentiment that has no use,

Latent despot on the loose

With talent of such monument,

Genius, magnificent,

Energy, celebrity,

Tireless creativity.



Matchless, still unfolding skill

Flying high on music’s wings.

Dead in its prime, and I am filled

With mourning for all death.

Irrational, but still

Stuck with a mourning

For all things that die in Time.
