All songs by Esther Condal

I am waiting for the BIRD that appears in the song number 10, the song you will never hear in this CD, because though I had the lyrics, the music never showed up. Meanwhile I will be waiting for the BIRD.

10.
If the dead are lying
in the houses under the sea,
What will the winds of august bring us?
Those winds,which have dried the hot summer’s wood.

Perhaps an autumn sky, full of BIRDs
who screech in the vibrant air
like the memories of what has been
of what might have been,
of what will be…

What will the cold, clear water spit out?
Perhaps a family portrait?
the bones of what could not be?
or a double-sided coin?
