earthhour instrument playing in the shadows sanshin
(medium-slow tune getting keener) pipa
(fast and dense, a fast tune buried) parlor guitar
(towards the end played an octave past the fingerboard) pipa
(slow, awkward, reminds me of SPK)

designer's abject revenge (takes a minute to load)

first it appeared wounded or blown apart,
then almost cartoon-like but sutured together
or trying to re-establish itself as life,
whatever that might be, covering up the mesh,
or skeins, or even nodes, it was hard to tell,
there had to be something to it, something
that had the scent of permanency or perhaps
a permanent odor, as blood and bruises
tend to go the spectral length, running from
one liquid color to another

(I've been clearly posting too much and will cut back to at most one a day 
- apologies. My work has been mainly online of course, but I feel I've 
gotten a bit out of control. It's been a hard past few months (but that's 
no excuse etc.).)
