released April 2, 2013

Voice and text by: David A. Feil
Recorded in Houston, TX December 2012

The text was originally composed in August 2012. Using a database of 3000+ poems compiled over the summer of 2012, an arbitrary-but-not-random instance of the word "the" plus the word following immediately after was queried from each record. With no seeming beginning or end but with a clearly defined form and rhythm, the text's flowing list of nouns functions as the skeleton of a poem, a story, or memory inescapably fleshed out further in each individual's imagination. Originally performed as part of the Texas Contemporary Arts Fair 2012.
