Words and music by Amy Denio.
My mother had her gall bladder removed. As she came to after the operation, the surgeon came in with a cup full of her gall stones. Anyone want this? My mom & sister & brother-in-law said in unison: 'Amy!'. A strange box came by mail a few weeks later.


Gall stones fall down from a life of ire
Reform the lyre on the funeral pyre
Gall stones tablets of seethed moments writ in stone
Minerals of anger, etched and sketched and honed


from Prodigal Light, released November 12, 2013
Amy Denio: slit drum, frame drums, accordion, glass jar of mother's gall stones, voice
Paul 'Che oke ten' Wagner: NW flutes
Jane Mabry: glockenspiel

Glockenspiel recorded at Jane's house in Seattle, accordion and flute recorded in Redmond at Paul's house, and percussions recorded at Spoot Studios in West Seattle.
Mastered by Mell Dettmer.
