about

Language was recorded over a three month period in fall of 2012.

When one holds an unshakeable belief in a falsehood, one lives as one can, and dies as one must.

Track Name: Dramastically
How found
Common place
Upturned into
Leering Face

And from the cracks
Shot lime-lemon sprouts
And the day judged
its respective bouts

To see and see
what came to me
As things have gone
dramastically
Track Name: Magnitoborscht
In ice encased
The evergreens
Their limbs and hands
sigh apologies

Peeling away
like smallish husk
Summoning
the dawn of dusk

It's in the pines
and so we found
Magnitoborscht
without a sound
Track Name: Contiguity
I became
well traveled,
Enlightened,
and Language bore
its fruits to me

Contiguity

Disengage
from A Priori
intuitions
of time and space
Remove self from

Contiguity
Track Name: Slow Zoom On Stills
A portrait of Washington
once hung in the cabin
Where the fire
Caressed my calves

I stood unmoving
Now in the whirlpool
Deep in the forest
I fell to my knees
pine cones in my hands
And wondered what happened

to ponder the glyphs
that had fell unto me
My life flashed before me
in a slow zoom on stills
Track Name: Tentatively Called
I was lost and
Tentatively calling
nothing but silence
greeted my calls

The hoot of the owl
sounded like vowels
the stones of language
I had forgotten I loved

Onward I trekked
Undeterred by my fortunes
and unhinged my maw
and called tentatively.
Track Name: Sacrosanct
Some things are just
too sacred to change
When I began this masquerade
the leaves clung lovingly to branches
sighing in the summer's heat
Now, abscission concluded
decayed, flakes of ice shrouded me
My course had not changed.
I trudged, chilled to the marrow
into the yawn of winter
I ate, I persisted
But yet I did not encounter.
I was unequivocally alone
Unloved.
Yet...
some things are just
too sacred to change.
