Dear Claus,

Stay alive

Sitting in a bush holding a dog’s paw
The spider web that swept in during the mystery of night
Leveling mountainsides
A blackberry seed caught between teeth

Solemn shivering rainstorm, clinched hands, fog rising, smoking under umbrella A way to stare piercingly into each other

Humans breathing under cantilevers, through pouring water, hope reflecting from everything, alone, together, looking

Screaming hard from the deepest part of your guts psychotic irrational primal breakneck tarpaper spear dirtbath forevernap

Jaguar red indelible furious sunrise
One thousand mile diffuse effusive spiritual pine mountaintop Infinite sapience eclipsing, collapsing

Spit crimson into the shower
Church organing Kawasaki serrate air chattering off the landscape

Worms curl in
Scuffed boat hull Disparate granularity Wavering teenage voices Polynomial objectivity Manic bliss
Mahler
Sludge
Fingerprints
Rocks

I heard once that life is a dream inside the mind of God.
Art is us telling ourselves that we are alive, inside this dream, inside this mad mind.
I dont give a fuck where we are- here in some philosophical solipsist I can hear birds at 5am take pharmaceutical h-dab in airports nod out typing and drink coffee wind is in trees behind my head Im alive

Nothing about us is about stasis it is all about the language of life bursting in every direction from every fucking thing

Love,
Andrew Birk
