playlist (sound vs. pain)

a playlist:

ratatat remixes the knife

the roots remix/sample joanna newsom

the squeakbirds
whose name i don’t yet know
who sound nothing like birds
and more like squeaky toys
slicing across sky
while i
bikeperch and
neckcrane
at texas and dwight

sleigh bells

annah anti-palindrome art crush

the warbling nightbird singing across the darkness of 12:21am

forever young
(which jp tells me is
siempre jovenes
en espaƱol)

mountains beyond mountains

ball of confusion

i write about sound
because it is easier than writing about the painribbons
bowtied around spine and hip joints

and the band played on
