Sequin in the Dustrag, performing TARDIGRADE TExT, 2017

TARDIGRADE TExT
 
An astrophysical calamity
Could boil the Earth's oceans
or evaporate the seas
 
But until the sun turns itself
inside out
you will survive
in a frozen lake
or next to radioactive chunk
or in a dusty crack of dried out sea bed
littered with salt encrusted ships hulls
Where fish became stones
 
And pebbles to skim
 
Into the dust, splashing up, like a wish of water 
 
Without language
Or radio
 
You sit it out
 
And wait for a soft mossy morning

Performing A Futuristic People Will Unearth You, 2017

 A Futuristic People will Unearth You

When your dried out encrusted ear
falls to the cracked earth, while fragments shatter
and the extent of your directed deafness becomes clear 
I hope a gushing swell of silt-laden waters
Surging from a monsoon of language
Will submerge you and carry you 
Deep into the inner void, 
A cervical depth
Where one day
A futuristic people 
With the same ears
And the same problems
Will unearth you
And lift you up in front of dignitaries
And lay you to rest, on your side
Next to a small girl
Who has none of the fineries you enjoyed,
But who does have an attuned ear
that looks exactly like yours.
