00:00 LEMON TREES 05:16 BIGGER FLAMES

Smell of grease and mint
Glissando, female laughter
Thirsty one spinning tops
Gold outline of her neck
Crimped at its deepest plastic
As cartoon backdrop
Lemon trees darkening
Wish-bones bit from a life
Private crisis of the now
These indolent visions, parched


Orange head secretes a lie above you
Sentencing the lacquered sky above you
Reflected in your stretched out hand in hand
Trees-to-logs cartwheel and die above you
Fluster of sailboats chop half-speed upon
Rose leather ocean, fake dry, above you
A coy curtsying earthquake kneels the ground
Yo-yo-ing trees liquefy above you
Well, now it’s your house, set neatly on fire
Its blistering heart bloats high above you
Atrophied crucibles, charrеd Russian dolls
A necklace of flames comply abovе you
Politely uproot the moon-trampled sea
A starlit sigh, sewn awry, above you

      It’s comforting somehow that youn can find some interesting new voices, especcially in jazz and electronics. My current mood is to focus a little bit more on that. Thank you!
