Inspired by the cover of the Haruomi Hosono album The Endless Talking, plus a few stray thoughts.
in the shape of a horse
preparing for winter
Stripes and candyfloss
masquerading as Something Important
How much of the cascade
has been created for entertainment?
(The directions are unclear; to follow them could result in a coffee table, that part that screws on to the ends of binoculars, clouds of smoke over California, or the end of democracy as we know it.)
in the shape of fiction
preparing for the crystal invasion
about stripes and candyfloss in disguise
Art flows over the landscape
a cascade of manufactured questions
and subconscious feelings
(It could be the end of democracy as we know it, clouds formed by burning forest, a section of the landfill reserved for discarded binocular parts, or a coffee table that has bruised one too many shins and must now be splintered. The meaning is unclear.)
A fictional horse
galloping across the winter landscape
Something Important is afoot
but only the horse knows for sure
And she’s not talking
