Old Earth

Village Underground
16 June

In crumbling earth
and ancient tree-roots, one man
sifts the residue.

In light and shadow,
music and stillness, he sits
looming and fading,

questioning a world
uncanny, beautiful,
leaf-strewn and mould-ridden.

Old Earth premiered at Village Underground, as part of the Spitalfields Music Festival, June 2012
