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

 Dance
 was 
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

down-grade

under-grow

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
