The Silent Drummer

Low tide five miles dry

deeper than despair

smooth as breasts wept upon

by a generation of fools — cool fools

squeezing every drop out of reality

exquisite precious oblivion

Young men sing it with a rage

they fear their lives won’t last too long

now’s the time to move along…

Sometime I too suffer this disease

future shock, hit me with a rock

but I know there is no future

for I am the Silent Drummer

this endless time of instant memory

which plays softly within me

sometimes in simple sorrow

the murmur of the creek

My friend Nadine Rennert and I have been working on a Manga Opera, the Saga of Blue Wolf, for several years. The project started when I was still hanging out in Berlin. Since I have returned home to France, each year we meet in a different place for a self appointed artist residence. It is my job to find unusual locations. The nicest one was in the Pyrénées : a big garden, a yurt, a bamboo house, a trailor, all solar powered & down to earth. For this location I was even awarded a metal of honour.

and the river was sighing

and the river was crying

the river was singing this song

it says lay your body down

let me roll over your bones

lay your body down

let me rock your soul

I went to the mountain

I wandered thru the trees

I went to the mountain

listened to the voice of the wind in the leaves

and the trees were…
