ALL MUSICAL BUFFY: PART 2 (a 4-sonnet sequence)
[rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form]

(CONTINUED FROM PART 1)


(3) BUT GATHERING MY DUST up off the floor

(like Dracula) I boldly stand my ground.

I call to Joss, but he's run out the door

and left the show in Marti's hands. The sound . . .


. . . of Noxon's voice still echoing her line

to Once More's parking cop -- no "underwear,"

she sang suggestively to beat the fine

right after [it's not] "right it isn't fair."


WHAT CRAZY verse is this? What do I mean?

I MEAN: Considering that Noxon sings

(yes, that was her -- the parking ticket scene),

let Buffy fly on aria-laced wings.


A distant Joss yells out: "But there's no time

to write new weekly melodies and rhyme."



(4) I DODGE HIS "STAKE" AND SHOUT: "Well, so says you!" <g>

I hear a laugh . . . then laughter from each side.

(And you -- I see you there -- you're laughing, too.)

But laughter's a good thing. I let it ride.


"The grace of great things" first may sound quite strange.

A Buffy that's all musicals sounds nuts.

(And Cop Rock tried it. That dead dog had mange.)

Oh yes, I know there are a thousand "buts."


HOWEVER . . . I STILL SAY -- and this is key --

the truest Buffy spirit takes song's form.


Sometimes it's through Bronze singers' eyes we see

the beauty of the Buffyverse -- the storm . . .


. . . of pure emotion washing through the night.

Once More . . . had hints of greatness. But not quite.
