SPINNING JENNY - w.sony the loneliness of Nietzsche forgetfulness of good a misbelief of painters a silence in the wood a seance of writers a flickering screen the power loom broken in eighteen thirteen spinning jenny a parliament of owls surrounds the burning frame spinning jenny a union is her dream smash the damn machine spinning jenny a murder of crows surround the stocking frames spinning jenny smash the new machines Quaker girl shaking at Burton’s Mill Luddites are swinging from Gallows Hill He met her in the moors they shared a common cause she lost him in the Napoleonic Wars spinning jenny a murder of crows surround the stocking frames spinning jenny smash the new machines

Amplexus -w.sony ___________ come with me to the river bed we’ll sleep amongst the weeds lovers in the sediment dive down deep you can teach me about Marx the struggle of the dogfish against militant mud-sharks Amplexus - you’re nervous Ambidextrous - I'm leftist Anarchist - hold your breath for me strawberry poison dart frog spawn is the best for poison used in arrow heads by tribes in the west hiding in the biomass the tetrapod has grown an extra pair of fins to hold his mobile telephone

Sleeping in the Vatican -w.sony _ She woke up in a labyrinth to the smell of wax and wood spellbound by a Minotaur she never understood that the brains of a beast and the blood of a lamb is only 10 percent man Sleeping in the Vatican Ariadne mistress of the labyrinth she’s frozen on the stairs between sleep and wakening for over a thousand years spellbound by a metaphor Cleopatra' tears near the gallery of masks the three graces immune to all the prayers Sleeping in the Vatican Ariadne Sleeping on the Vatican floor
