  • Double CD - Limited Edition Hand-printed Paper Sleeve
    Compact Disc (CD)

    Numbered edition of 50 copies. This is the FINAL batch of these gorgeous hand-made packages. When they are gone, they will be gone forever.

    As the printing is done entirely by hand, no two prints are exactly alike, making each sleeve a unique work of art.

    Includes full lyrics.

    Packaged in a clear resealable Japanese mini LP dust cover. These covers are specially imported from Japan, and can be resealed again and again to protect the contents from dust and damage. No wasteful environmentally damaging shrinkwrap!!!

lyrics

A silver wind breathes low,
beyond the poison trees,
where tortured spectres flow
into the metal seas.

Medusa holds the glass
at edge of chasm black.
As statuary still,
reflections flicker back.

Reach to the end of night,
float over strange plateaus,
Where syllables of poetry
cascade like dominoes.

[a walk from wind to wind
reaches the end and keeps going
circular as the idea of horizon
balancing starlight on narrow edge
and there is a sound of jangling atmospheres
ringing with the swift ghosts of fires
countenance of petal white
eyes for holes and holes for eyes
vivid blindness clearest sight
carried by decaying flight
the glide to ground
and then the sound
is sharp not round
is tightly wound
with shrieking pitch
the running stitch
leaves no loose threads untangled
words spoken never arrive
but are suspended
by the letters of a frozen alphabet
meaningless as forgotten constellations]

The swallower of many suns
is hiding in the forest.
Eyes as bright as diamonds,
and dark as helleborus...
