threw myself at

this diminutive

root and branch

mawkish, spineless

this seasick music

how he wanted

a thousand cartoons


in 1813

skill never improved


which, for once

no view of the Rhine

refused point blank

‘luxury, not a luxury’

in Munich

Wagner cried

‘love thirsty life’

soul and splender

look after Ludwig

‘to drown, to sink’
