Creeley's Bird (Eliot Cardinaux, solo piano)

The Bird  (Robert Creeley)

What did you say to me
    that I had not heard.
She said she saw
    a small bird.

Where was it.
    In a tree.
Ah, he said, I thought
    you spoke to me.

"Fast" - Eliot Cardinaux, Jeremy Starpoli

Poem by Eliot Cardinaux
Jeremy Starpoli - trombone improvisation


An impression of pleasing
curved mother’s glasses' rim
to weight soon indelectable,
while impressions unfold
from a moving eye,

in a such great wait
never were there
more presence of opulation,
fantastic beyond all centered out
from in, is passion’s light
weightless formless birth.
