STASIS VERSUS MOTION

1. Konchu Flambé 昆虫フランベ (6:47)
Night falls like a knife. Evolve ...or get out of the way.
2. Lucida (0:29)
3. Front-side Ollie (3:40)
Asphaltum acts as an acid-resist to etch the happiness in my head.
4. The Reflection of Skin (0:40)
5. Sperm Cracked the Egg * (5:34)
Broadcasting at the frequency of youth...
6. Edna White (6:28)
A breath. The Moon. A sigh like the ocean. Edna ...(that young, enigmatic girl!)
7. Daisy-Dangled Daydream (3:51)
8. Patina Swirl * (8:18)
Out of the miracle of nothing-you exist.
With your butterfly breath-
Call your spit ...site-specific sculpture.
Charm the skin off an insect.
Tattoo the world with your chutzpah.
You want to hoodwink your "maker."
You want to start a religion ...Practice random acts of kindness.
Is this vicissitude?
Call it solipsism.
Oh how in my head-the patina swirls.
Love like art spirals outward.
9. 25¢ for the Next 2 Minutes (0:04)
10. Stasis Versus Motion * (5:54)
Lollipop. Sky-drop. Safe in my cocoon. What's a supermodel to a burn victim?
