Nourish the unpredictable moment the eureka
To set the stage at the winter solestice
piano left contrabass and vibraphone center drums right
To make the floor shake
To create the sensation that the ceiling has been raised
Lay it down foundation sill joists subfloor corner posts
Vertical form Gravity rising up and down
The unconscious undeletable memory
long before industrial slaves, colonial knives,sonata allegro and even ‘down on the farm’ .
As the ice began to melt they emerged from their caves their long isolation and as before the ice time they began once again to resonate
altering their central nervous system to trance rapture fluid communion
They knew it was good
The sky danced over drums strings and bells
Sumerian societas a society of friendship

Fast forward

Cubism ended
The astronauts saw that everything was round
still some triangles and boxes in masses of sound

Nostalgia is the the taste of leadership which seeks to decorate it’s own ambitions always looking back

Beauty is the search of living
Death marks time silent catatonic across the ocean heavy in the eyes’ blue human portrait

As the ice returns
In the winter of the empire Tacitus lays everything bare the demise of liberties the rise of dubious characters
So release the River please please
If not now when
After the leaves have gone
Rise up speaking thinking singing and brooding”
