[the birds bring us to kneel
in unchartered fields
before the river takes us to see

wherein you'll find Swann songs
from Potomac to Mekong

a Dada db
baa-baa black sheep
lucid dreams
count by 3

Patrol Boat, Riverine
a murder of ravens roosts still in the trees

no joy in the sunshine
Tristes Tropiques
shit-eating smiles are frowns upside-down

Africa's a long way from the hills of Ngong
the Congo's a far cry from the Mekong or Pagsanjan

playing ping pong in the Congo
or in Hong Kong playing bongos

thriver memes
river genes
the virus survives
fruit or weeds

the deepest river in the world
so deep fish don't need eyes

there's nothing to see
move along
he died for the bombshell blond

he died for the bombshell blond (x2)

950 <(current)> 949 > the adventure of eclipsed nights + animals in motion 2 the apathy of habit + discontent of modernity
