time of the california seahare (greatly compressed)
i tried with the outdoors sound of the world
i battered the sound and mavericked it
the california seahare Aplysia californica was silent
it cannot hear the sound of the camera peering from above
and slightly to one side
this is the song of the california seahare
oh silent and moving slowly and grazing on Ulva
and graving on everything and moving slowly
with the beauty of the matrix and twenty megabytes

tonight is full of sadness
the california sea hare has several thousand neurons never dreaming
i will live their life
i will be without memory and without clarity
so many millions of years as if it were this very moment
almost a mourning water weeping air
