We exist in ruins, in the dust.
An eye blinks
and the world goes black.

What once could be recovered has now vanished.
Gaza is a prison camp, an open hole beneath the stars.
Children play in the rubble.

Isis bulldozes the ancient city of Nimrud;
its stone panels
have been defaced,

the walls of its ancient palace crushed
(a human head is severed from the body
of a winged bull).

The ocean fills with plastic bottles
that some day will return to us;
their labels gone, the messages inside lost.

A Country of Snow

A cardinal flaps its wings in a country of snow.
Its blood will not freeze.
Its red feathers are a revelation when all is white.

Nightmares exist only in the dark.
I must face the truth when the sun is high,
when the world is luminous and open.

I rummage around in a closet that is not my own.
I take a notebook and write these poems.
I must give them back. I must let them go.

Wow! I agree with the statement about it being a bit monotonous, although that's not throughout the whole piece. But this this is great stuff man! Very nice sound in your voice, and very courageous to bring it like this.

cool :) ... watch the flow it's very often too similar and thus could get boring ? nice recording !

It was an experiment...maybe too much of a monotone...really good atmosphere.
