Track Name: The Find
Down there what did we find?
concentric straight and curved lines
the slow slope, a familiar curve of buried sedimented earth
the spire climbed unnatural heights, unparalleled stalagmite
the basin carved through silt and sand
the bones of our beginning and

receiver for the deep of space dug in unexplored place
pulsing out it emanates, captured in the bounded wave
deepest ocean : distant space
humming softly : harmony

the deep of both reached out to me
