ICS 2012​.​12​.​30

by Amy Denio / Spoot Music

Dreamt about a city rising over the water hummingbirds were feral, fighting over the feeder Little birds, do you flock in herds? No, in this case eah one on their own Little birds, do you hear what I heard? Jets are leaving contrails again. The day before it rains the plans leave traces of butane Clouds of mystery straight lines overhead Slowly fall in the windless sky, I think I'll go back to bed Dreamt about some buildings, perched high over the roadways Roadways crisscrossing, nary a human in sight Little birds what do you prefer? Flying backwards, or flying upside down Little birds did you hear what I heard The hiss of a chemical plane fart Dreamt about some people, televisions for heads Sparks flying from antennae, the way they talked made me dread That I didn't know if the sparks would ignite the feathers of the hummingbirds to continued to fight I dreamt I dreamed I dropped a doppler I dreamt I dreamed I shopped for gawkers I dreamt I gawked at all the shoppers running by making doppler
Sun through fog shines Brilliantine branches Flicker landing among grackles some hidden sign makes them fly again Mist mutes morning roar Shifting vapor cold to the bone Heir to the throne of dew drop on a winter morn Footsteps trace a path not yet known Blades of grass now grown frail in the frost Bent over to pray for a pasture's posture lost
All text is from http://www.livescience.com/178-spin-earth-rotation. Earth slows down in winter More forceful winds turn the earth into a spinning ice skater tucking in her arms Spinning earth and swirling atmosphere together create a whole system Adjusting to the blustery winter months by slowing down the solid Earth's rotation The moon and the earth are slowly drifting away from each other It may be that rotation and weather are so intricately tied that it may not make sense to speak of cause and effect.
Clancy 02:42
Clancy the tabby cat saw a sax for the first time Slowly part by part was shown and smelled Tolerant for the most part, he didn't mind the silence But when I licked the old reed and waved it in his face he screwed up his face, he wrinkled his nose and he backed away as only cats can do Yucky yucky bad smell decomposing sax reed stinky think I bet you never brushed your tail or ate cat food in your life and by the way my fur is a little matted in the back and what about my toenails?
Napping 02:17
Napping when the gloaming falls Eyes closed and mind loose cherish the warmth and quiet
When I get hungry I don't think of anything but soup in the kitchen Soup kitchen's closed Getting those hunger pangs dang clanging empty bangingness of nuture, my nature, a virtue to sup
