Here are a few excerpts from my recent song-cycle of poetry by Billy Mills, Logical Fallacies. The performers are Andreea Banciu (viola) and Elizabeth Hilliard (soprano).

Manor Street

gate
walk

snails
trike

trough
float
stairs
 
string
cards

This song

this song is not
the world is
 
this song is not
the world

(For Larry)

a poem
is always a poem
 
a moth
a moth
 
even
a stranger
 
caught
in a room
 
finding
no exit
 
in a park
by a river
in another city
 
not the one I was born in
not the one I live in now
 
a city at war
with itself

Our previous collaboration, Loop Walks, a work of scored polyphonic poetry, is available from http://hardpressedpoetry.blogspot.ie/ and bealfestival@gmail.com

We’re planning to work on another project this year…
