non alternating steps, both feet moving forward at the same time, trudging clothes hemmed too long dancing and dragging on the floor, quicker now, perpetually tripping in slow motion, catching the egoless self, and picking the egoless self back up, clothes having a mind of their own, animated moving in ways not determined by the feet and legs, split, screams, a solid line jutting out, zig zags crossing each other, never parallel, slight differences in angles, mud painting the ground, definite thick lines and splotches characterized by sand springled along it at points and against it at others, blurs of medium here on earth for a long time and always there in some capacity

forward far

food moves

catch me

i want to hear everything all the time sometimes

plucked

spoken

hollowed voice

thinks

splashing

can’t

always

not

flow

me

wash slow fast separate from time

in the ether

in nowhere

looking

thrown back

happy here

bolts

joyous



chimes


danceful lucky

Stuff I Listened To A Lot During 2020

There’s been a helluva lot of time to listen to music this year. Can’t put my finger on why. You’ve probably seen a bunch of year-end lists and Spotify Wrapped-s, and lord knows you’ll see a lot more.

Ingrid Laubrock & Tom Rainey's "Utter"

I wrote about this album and duo in a much different way for the Chicago Reader. You can read that here. --- tender timid wisps of human noises rustling underneath creating bushes and shrubberies sing
