Methods of Transportation                                  

            When I listen to a harpsichord
            Play Bach

            I hear the creaking of a hull
            That’s moored and cries
            With every swell and breeze
            For distant shores and seas

            And, honestly, I can’t imagine
            That Johann Sebastian 
            If implored 
            Would hesitate to let his Goldberg Variations shock
            Or the Well-Tempered Clavier transport me
            To the oceans and the skies
            On the incomparable
