Poetic Thoughts - Leonard Bernstein - by C.W. Pruitt II
posted: May 10, 2019

Poetic Thoughts header

While watching a PBS special on Leonard Bernstein I was taken aback by the emotion he displayed while conducting. He seemed to experience dramatic catharsis from the music. This is my catharsis from his catharsis:

enerving
2 touch
1 nerve

to wring
the tension
of the soul

out like
a sponge
full of
tears
