Jeff Richardson Imaginative; dare I say seminal? An ever changing tide, whose patterns flux with time and state.

Way back, when studying matters of the occult (and astronomy), I was fascinated by this, "Thirteenth Sign of the Zodiac". It's serpentine name equally mysterious. However, there are orders of magnitude between the zodiac and the sometimes corresponding constellations. There is metaphore here. Favorite track: Bifurcaria Bifurcata.

EyeChartBrew Mix three parts Black Metal with two parts Tool, and season liberally with South African herbs and spices. Throw it into the oven at 350F for 45 minutes to get a nice crunchy char, and you wind up with this very interesting album. I dig this. A lot!

Vestibule 09:37
on the evening of the dust we set afloat our dead the water tugged at your hair and the river took you home illuminate my compound eyes and shine my carapace descend lickspittle overmen with rickets in their bones ether in their chests and verses of the tongue indifferent as the stones indifferent as the sun ocean beats the rhythm i need to breathe ebb and tide marching leg flute time she hatched her babies inside a host with a skin to beat and a wrist to flick descend yesman underlings hands into the pockets of the dead blessings of a kingly king bellies in the dirt thumb-screw ties the one-eyed and the blind while a black maria keeps a cure beneath her feet but herod and the monkey men tied a noose of golden trim my coward son came home a sage with concubines. and pineal eyes.
lady of the wheel mistress with a skin to wear intestines on the left coinage on the side and jimson of the weeds with logic up her sleeves feral siblings in a neck of the woods mother's eyes from a hutch the woods a brother with the shape of my son become a home to the insects sexless vessels become us constellations sighed apparatus fuckingly sublime jack of spades had a rib to spare bifurcaria bifurcata the plants accept my gift a cudgel to the knees. monthly moons to count cavities to mount itch of the ants on the palms of my hands strangers and cowards in back wards with reptiles and black lights that throb knowingly
Heliopause 03:15
Obol 12:37
lizzard with the sight told tales to its kind memorise the patterns on your side opening the mouth had yellow ribbons tied weigh that phantom limb mementos of archipelagos leave a self for a foot of clubs the vestigial for the unperishable in my mouth i keep a fare but my hands hold on to all that's new and on the morning of the stars i climb outside and grasp the night old skin shed in dawn of light
