Death by Landscape or a second night, Janet, a cadence out of time, une balade dans le bois, a melody sung in darkness, a sting removed by fiction,a waste of time, an act of archeography, a thank-you-dance, a dance to under-grow.

premiere at brut Wien 6 7 8  9 November 2024

is
the pre-text

of inscriptions traces / grammatically possessed
~

a potential to signify “nothing, in particular”

falling through the fields [the space it requires to think of a field]

an early scorch, nocturnal and sleepy

i once buried sleep in a Belgian garden at night. it was rigid with death

in a way/in a sentence/in an agenda/ in a dream/ in a plot/ in language

we drip-leak caress cailloux, we touch theory
(a dance that takes place outside of relations & long attractions/abstractions)

iridescent trails left by cosmetology in the ocean

open the gap between words, insert grace in a geological time , g(l)ossip and sip
weave your dirty palette, a ritual in stillness and mourning lotion

a hollowed out time
just lining out
while my left arm grazes

a moving group of chemicals suspended by the shoulder straps
pyjama-like trousers co-produce the atmosphere
the atmosphere that allows things not to snap into making sense
down-grade
under-growth
subterranean meows high on night pollen

these travels, milking the soil
our lexical fields in checkered patterns

how not to retain, keep
how to de-solidify
inserting air and words in an articulation:
i want to publish words in your knee, under your left patella

it shouts and drops eyes
heart drops, an acceleration of a breath
there is a piano tune between the palm of my hand and the floor
