non-fiction rock from Aotearoa New Zealand

The trees are alive

SquidBoat – a new instrumental, solo project from the skirted stable. Reflections on deep south, blackest nights on a broad and expansive coast that one can almost see Antartica from.

out from Oreti
launch into the vast darkness
the greatest and
deepest southern basin

lights penetrating
darkest of nights
from where even though
its impossible
to see the place
where the horizon meets
the abyss
sailors trawl
beasts from the deep

now
there are no lights on the skyline
the only light is far
from beyond a billion miles

massive factories
from the north
crowded out
the tiniest of vessels
deep dredging
in a most expansive of space

there is no room for the little
even more is consumed
in a process of more
for less
