Background

A description of the experience

Arthur Rimbaud – from Rimbaud Complete [translated by Wyatt Mason]

Beneath the sky’s unalterable collapse, perceptions and rhythms fill .. head and spirit, as soon as all the number crunching is set aside.

A horse bolts across the suburban earth, through gardens and lumberyards, stabbed by carbonic plague.  Somewhere in the world, a histrionic woman sighs after unforeseen abandonment.  Desperadoes pine for storm, injury, and debauch.  Along rivers, little children choke down curses.
