about

Composition for Heather Britt's piece Opus 5.5, performed at the Cincinnati Ballet in September 2012.

lyrics

How the streets do bend at will
Where the incline alights the hill
The summer's slowly gone
We sing a new song

Untie this crooked seam
Move me to a better looking dream
One with the houses I recall
And all their rooms

We do not mend our open wounds
We salt them and watch them bloom
There are bowers in the blood
Blooming mycelia

Oh so my dear
What the hell are we doing here?
I'm tired and cannot sit up straight
The sun in your eyes
I couldn't leave you if I tried
The bulbs in the ground
and seeds all around
the fossils of flowers and me
Oh how sweetly it goes
the ripples of a lung
the mushroom veins
the misty rains
the swirling arcane
