Monday’s Music Box; Soundtrack for Surfing: Sufjan Stevens, “Michigan”

Many thanks to Rebecca Moon Ruark, aka Rust Belt Girl for pointing me to this gentleman’s amazing music.

A complex and intriguing album.

Well worth a fully engaged listen, with headphones, preferably.

Serious power here, both musically and lyrically.

Three “Invisible String” poems (after Jim Moore)

I do not like 

polishing the tea pots.
	My face, already 
		grotesque, reflected, distorted 
	even more in their surface.


I have nine books

borrowed from the library.
	Still, I am reading the one
		new book of poems
	I found at the thrift store.


We don’t know

the length, the breadth,
	the width, the height,  
		and certainly not the depth 
	of our unknowing.
