Distant Music [feat. Sera Seines]

from by The John V. Variety Hour



remixed re-worked lovely beasts track
in progress for future release with sera seines


six stones aslant
along sea of black ink;
thrown, they sink

into the stony
slopes of ocean floor ....
I float upwards—

six moments slip
behind a midnight cloud...
and somewhere, soft shouts—

and all the while air
smokes along my spine:
all in due time...

in due time...

a lightning bolt that
strikes and then unfurls;
your fingers grip—curled

golden hair (I hear
her singing, too) ...
the music moves you

back into the shadow
of a moon—now
you go black,

and all the while there's
smoke along my spine:
all in due time ...
in due time...


from HR 1, released September 13, 2016

spatterings of pitched piano by elias dagher
