INSTRUMENTATION Flute (double Piccolo) Clarinet in Bb (douoble Bass Clarinet in Bb) Violin Cello Piano Baritone Tenor

Percussion (Suspended Cymbal, China Cymbal, 4 Temple Blocks Low to High], 3 Bongos [Low, Medium, Nigh], 3 Toms [Low, Medium, High], Tam Tam, Large Bass Drum, Vibraphone [with Bow], Marimba)

PERFORMANCE NOTES • • • • • •

Score is transposed. All accidentals remain in effect throughout the measure at the register indicated. Grace notes should always be played before the beat. Flutter-tongue, trills, and tremolo should always be played unmeasured, and as fast as possible. All trills are at the half step unless otherwise indicated. The primary note should be articulated first. In the strings and piano, tremolo is indicated with slashes through the note stem, or between stems. In the flute and clarinet, slashes indicate fluttertongue.

In the strings, indications such as s.p. followed by an arrow pointing to another indication such as ord. indicate a gradual change from one timbre to the next.

Abbreviations used in this score are as follows: s.p. = sul ponticello s.t. = sul tasto ord. = ordinario •

Notational convention for microtones is as follows:

¼ tone sharp

 ¾ tones sharp

Crescendo and decrescendo markings with a small circle at the tip indicate coming from or going to a niente (nothing) volume level.

Glissandi should occur over then entire rhythmic duration of the note to which they are attached.


POEMS

Introduction Barely existent at Midday, At sunset and sunrise I Am grossest, though no heavier Than at noon. The sun and I disappear altogether Together. Usually You and I play footsies. Now Surely you remember my name?

Lover with a Half-full Glass The most minimal Smile Of politeness assured my Heart Of her heart’s equal obsession With me. When she appeared quite indifferent to me, I knew She was just playing hard to get.

Cupidity Mental agitation—embarrassing Drift Toward self-gratification—desire Not To desire—tense proclivity to lust.

Invasive Species The backs of My Hands display veins as Crisscrossed As the shiny ivy twines That these very hands, muddy and green-stained, strain To deracinate.

Death at Sixty (April 28, 1997) Her little body Still Here though containing no Soul Housed a spongy brain that Had for months displayed no outward evidence of mentality And today Lost its value even for triggering Electric impulses necessary for breath.
