January, last light, South Wallowas

January, last light (I.26.2009) . . .
On the road in the American Northwest.


Our troubled relationship with the Earth?

God wrote the music.

The Devil conducts.

Everyone must play in the symphony of Life.

The contract says, "forever."

So we push our buttons,

and stroke our strings,

at his command.

Remember: Everyone must play.

The contract says, "forever."

He reminds us, "Poor child. There's no

way in Hell you could live without the results."

And we believe him.
