JÓZSEF BÍRÓ

.I.A.O..O

an irregular mini – opera in three acts / movements

- in memory of János Pilinszky  -  )




MOVEMENT ONE

VIVACE

(  1  )

 work knows suitable
half reed well-spring
:  thinks leaves wedding
takes posterior truth
hearty rejects leader
:  cloud bleeds tune
saint-lamb familiar lung
in-lap narrow toast-freedom
:  granted thorough brains-washing
undoubted rain pouring
no definite newsagent
:  sleek distant below
behind pallets lair
crafted man survives
:  soon loves seriously
enjoys crabbing nature
lies sluttish dreariness
:  sizing starts deepen
wants fastidious candle-stump
colourfully see country
:  such smile sometimes




VIVACE

(  2  )

 distorted anxious vision
unbounded kantele wheezes
:  stuck humid gold
flawless hair prophecy
yesterday lamentable dream
:  bars twisting continuous
tired rope-bridge stammers
leeward place terminates
: promptly three following
orphaned bitter wall-clock
tyranny in-pair embellished
:  fresh arriving drama
petals open umbrella
honey-tasted opinion drizzling
: free vapour swallowing
experience brings harbour
outdoor sequel undertakes
:  looks doubt daily
naked trial part
being viable darkness
:  holiday croons sea




VIVACE

(  3  )

 externally executes life
sets shaman-drum scar-ash: 
surprising however appears
rubbish lies bread
aimless variation knows
: flutters piano flower-path
at-the-same-place spittle-splashed blanket
bittering mouldy shroud
:  rotten noting cabbage
never waving map
camouflage self-collected dead-end-village
:  abyss appears edge
undulated ice-block directs
validated wax sky
:  walk-distance evades fat
sorrow in-time same
merciful stunt home-cry
:  immersed past aspect
mossy aflutter scribbling-block
servant stoops envelope
: standard harrow nestles




(   furioso   )

 spawn-striked painting again
but breakthrough smoke-stripe
:  black counterpoint occasion
desire-wing educates time-goal
taking resigning reason
:  hanging orders multitudinous
against leather-binding soap
output odorous skull
:  gaseous trace beside




MOVEMENT TWO

cloud bleeding tune

:  free vapour swallowing
looks doubt daily
holiday croons sea

walk-distance evades fat
immersed past aspect
:  standard harrow nestles

 (   furioso   )


spawn-striked painting again
