rubythroat ‘baby darling taporo’
where have you been rubythroat?
2012-2016 tiny ship in the hand of the infinite –
how can i explain? yes, we did this thing, sailed around the world with a baby
girl and a boy who’d undergone a trauma few of us have to realise, what is there to say?
i have lost my seeing and knowing
salvaged from the windward side of forgotten places, please enjoy the few songs and improvisations that found their way through the gaps in our teeth
i thank those that have chosen to remain
always yours with love
