whisper, murmur, sough
sadness of leaving this fine fine world
every year is a month, every month a week
every week is a day, every day an hour
every hour is a minute, every minute a second
and not a second minute and not a second hour,
neither a second day nor a second week,
certainly not a second month, nor a second year
hello old friends and new!
hello new friends and old!

death will never leave us, death will never leave
death will never leave us, death will never leave

goodbye old friends and new!
goodbye new friends and old!

last evening an artists house in an artists soul!
an artists village in an artists world!
goodbye goodbye!
goodbye goodbye!

last night, an apparition, beautiful

last night, an apparition, beautiful
of a young woman perfectly framed by the studio doorway
suddenly, staring at the image with which i possessed her
i noticed ... nothing more or less than the mark upon her
hours i labored ... hours ...
until i brought to the surface what had remained hidden
until i uncovered her very soul
the square on the face of the very young woman
the square on the face of the woman ...
