recorded one then the other then looked for contours
you can hear the contours one fast one slow
it's the snow the relentless snow and subzero temperatures
everything makes the loneliness of the blizzard indoors
everything makes the loneliness of the blizzard and out
and out and the temperature and the eternal snow
it's the loneliness of the sounds thoughts of suicide
thoughts of darkness and life seeping out from wood
seeping out from wood and bamboo rising to stars
to stars in an impossible sky an impossible world
world of impossible snows and the loneliness of white
loneliness of white and grey and black the color
the color of snow from white and grey and black
and the temperature of the snow and its eternity
