From the album They Call To You, July 24, 2014 at Marigny Recording Studio, New Orleans.
Album mastered in February 2016.


Genes went to necks like swans
Alabaster and onyx.
Myriad! Cecil Taylor's myriad
Note-clusters shatter, as
Celia may welcome a Loa.
Aye, and bend to heave,
High, and eye under one lens
Blue-green populaces
Recombinant, infinite,
Too-too pimiento
Like Mann-born Joe's
Coat of many-colored felicity.
Because the course is circular
We shall not cease from exploration.
We shall not cease from exploration
Because the course is ciricular.
So we d'--dt'--d'--d't--d't
Dance! We
D'-D'-D'-D'r--D'r Dance!
Let no one deny you openings
Less splendid, less different--
Less splendiffernt!
