Logical Fallacies

August 8, 2015 § Leave a comment

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

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…
