E​.​Manu Eel: 2nd Coming

by Guano Breath

we bow our heads in unison & listen to benisons in latin as we sit on satin cushions in silence with violent visions of serpents & surplices & sacred bullocks & cassocks & castration casting lustral pearls at lugubrious swine that wallow in goodswill on the dunghill of time popping corn & copping porn pages from hoary wisdom torn: O HEAVENLY FATHOPE GRUNT UNTO US IN THIS THE HOUR OF OUR SORDID GREED WE PLEAD WITH BEADS OF GRUBBY CREED IN CHUBBY FINGERS from the foulpit to the pulpit of the chosen pew we send forth solemn nostrums from the rostrum to our beloved token jew FORGIVE US OUR FOREFATHERS' FORESKINS AND GIVE US THIS DAY A DULL RAP ON THE SKULL CAP OR SOME CLAP TRAP oh we think we know we see whom & how & whatsoever we should be for all is ultimately part & parson of immortality (so help me) wherefore this common porridge: this grim & grueling gravy in which organisms sink or swim suspended in acute & minute animation doomed to drink & be drunk & perchance be merry or to suffer indigestion &/or indigestibility? BY THE MONAD'S GONADS, ANSWER ME! we bow our heads over supper sipping soup but does it really matter if tablemanners are observed or if slurping sounds delicious? after all the tiny whiny citizens aswoon or aswirl in their own dire mansions in our soupy microcosm are also busy bowing pious little heads over teeny weeny bowls of perfect beans... And be it so.

My output mostly dates back to the 1980s and has been heard by a mere handful. This isn't what I'm into now but at least I'm not too embarrassed about it.

Collaborations with others & freestyle choreographic works form an integral part of my archive.

I enjoy being the world's least ambitious musician.
