3 Śmigus​-​Dyngus Caprices for Processed Non​-​Player Violin, Voice, Organ, and Ghosts

by Jeff Gburek Projects

supported by


clinging winter drips and randomly falling ice from the eaves
overtone drones from aging drives
the violin like a falcon up from the nest
flies into unknowing, unknown hands
and fingers snap buds off the willow
white little fluffy little willow-berry heads
fallen on the table, down of the dove-chick,
sacramental heads, two fuzzy egglettes
by the bow-swing accident
tumbled on the table, streaked with pastel
turpentine, linseed, rape-seed oil
while up on the willow stem, the peak-point
of the branch destined soon to decay,
the jaw-line, the beak, or the talon
of the falcon, curls a tender claw
cupping the coming bud-head
white as moon or the snow-dawn
pressing me so early
into what there is to do
