 Joseph Ceravolo: Hidden Bird
     June 13, 1985   

S
ong birds enter the morning
the pre-dawn before the fires,
you know, when the night floats away
like vapor on a lake,
or like kisses in the woods.
Songs that even creation
might not remember.

Continuous, threaded, as if
a cherry pit were stuck
in the throat
to produce the trumpet of the branches.
So varies, yet never, changing
through all the days, since
reptiles fell to earth.

I give up the reason for the sound
I give up the creature of sound
and the creator of the creatures
and of us and of dawn and
air and of vacuum
and human inhumanity.
I give up the song.
I give up the place


Joseph Ceravolo (1934-1988): Hidden Bird (June 13, 1985), from  Collected Poems (2012)

The Colonel's ghost sinks toward the ocean floor

It seemed so easy
all those years
slicing through the currents

you'd order
wait a bit quietly in the shallows
and done

you could breathe again

then things changed
with the great calcification
you'd turn to stone

down down down you'd sink
plummeting to the bottom 
arms pressed tight to your sides

J Hendrix Hey Joe live 1967

People were confused after watching this show They didn't know how to take the presence of an inter dimensional, space alien from the future playing the music of the ancient ones

Some things are gone before they even happen, unless creation is paying especially close attention.
