Camera Obscura – Razzle Dazzle Rose

Change file extention to the obvious to listen. (And please comment if said work-around doesn’t work.)



Again I reply to the triple winds
running chromatic fifths of derision
outside my window:
Play louder.
You will not succeed. I am
bound more to my sentences
the more you batter at me
to follow you.
And the wind,
as before, fingers perfectly
its derisive music.

– William Carlos Williams
