The Stone of Prehistory

    It's Bird Names-- toiling under its name after a thousand years to proudly give you 50 minutes of contemporary music to mythologize your life by. These minutes have come by serious meditation under the bodhi tree-- the insight of intuitive play tempered by tactful and ornate craft. Here is what I have to say to you. You will be amused to make yourself in its clay.

lyrics

THE STONE OF PREHISTORY

The stone of prehistory
Held in the palm of time
Held even today
As a smooth bead of sand

Entropy filling in the valleys
With rubble from mountaintops
Like hot coffee over ice

The atoms rub off the stone
Refacing the prehistoric tableau
As hot coffee poured on ice
Will settle into a tepid mean

The non-petrified matter
As fragile as a boulder
The pitchfork turns it over

Sand of the past in hand
Time is kind
