It was a fine lecture, unbroken continuity
developing your theme completely
what was left unsaid was not limiting
how you persuaded with emotion
then concrete examples, arriving by train
or metro to break monotony
a little underground twist of immediacy
conditioned on how the past is perceived
our resistance to what has gone before
means of transport, compactness of cargo
critical sketches, illuminating interpretation
have been philosophically qualified
great advances have come, when the libido
participates fully, as you explained
with Schrödinger’s equation or Einstein
the relation of mass to energy, even
the popular movie Amadeus Mozart argues
your thesis against the celibacy of Salieri, the protagonist.
