The Music

The music was without air,
random notes carom, insensate,
lost to each other
in scattered predilections;
deep affinities,
the currency
like the last ashes of light,
but not necessarily
of meaning.

  1. Thomas Edison developed direct current on behalf of General Electric. Nikola Tesla developed alternating current on behalf of the Westinghouse Company. Direct current could not travel very far without a transformer and was quite impractical. Alternating current could travel great distances. The two of them were in competition to have their form of electricity become the prominent accepted form. To prove his point and have his direct current accepted and show the dangers of alternating current, Thomas Edison would attach a dog to alternating current and stun the audience with his electrocution. Nice guy ole’ Thomas Edison! Of course alternating current became the accepted form of electricity despite all the dead dogs.
