moving down on estuary and hollow…fog courtesy of Weathercat Productions

the fog
is cozy
cozy
the games we played
bringing a whole
town a whole
country into the
back yard the
fog smoothes
out the world
for us to
a smaller one
like white bread
and butter
houses roads
trees clumped
in dimness
look
bags packed
ready to leave
into that fog
abandon the
tasks of day
the magpie
looks down
at me from
winter branch
calls disgruntled
to his mate
this cozy world
is moving
moving
just
very fine
very fine
rain twirling
and
all the
sorrows
moving
down on
estuary and
hollow.

The music is from the third movement of Schumann’s Fantasie in C Major – ‘Langsam getragen. Durchweg leise zu halten’ (something like ‘a solemn, measured tempo, keep it quiet throughout) performed by Yeol Eum Son.

Here is a link to the performance itself:
