Delicate Chaos



‘In Albania the music came thick and fast and the sounds were a peculiarly delicate chaos of teeming nature, Ramadan and man-made machine noise’


- Ramona Stout, Unbound Atlas


There is a point of reception

A listening post

In this letter


A point of translation


Perhaps several points

Related in an editing instinct


But heard as a point

That seems unnoticed

So life is disinterested

And you can listen


I am not clothed in this hubbub

And I do not disrobe

Spread cheeks to this

Public if ignoring bustle


The two notes of one bird

See saw to say

This is true, this is true


Things will clink


This much we know


We have not yet stopped

This clinking, it is the work of

Hands surviving


The circle of chaos

Every lap a new unfolding


Where do you place yourself,

Listener?
