Liner notes:

O you singer, solitary, singing by yourself—projecting me; 
O solitary me, listening—nevermore shall I cease perpetuating you;
 Never more shall I escape, never more the reverberations,
 Never more the cries of unsatisfied love be absent from me,
 Never again leave me to be the peaceful child I was before what there, in the night, 
By the sea, under the yellow and sagging moon,
The messenger there arous’d—the fire, the sweet hell within,
 The unknown want, the destiny of me.
O give me the clew! (it lurks in the night here somewhere,)
O if I am to have so much, let me have more!

This beauty is whitish-yellow by fat and is of raw dolerite under the lurid turquoise coloured sky and doesn’t care about your opinions or ideas. It crawls forward busily gnawing at the cliffs and grinds it into submission. ... more
