Death by Landscape, a concert (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

the pre-text,
 the pre-face 
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 abstractions)

iridescent trails left by cosmetology in the ocean

Death by Landscape, a concert, a ritual in stillness and mourning lotion opens the gap between words, inserts grace in a geological time, g(l)ossips and sip
weaves my dirty palette

the 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



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
