Snippet video of first of my songs to be released!
I have been working for some time on pieces of music, more correctly songs, that I hope entertain and inform. I intend to post them here soon or at least a sample and links to where you can buy them. Some are acapella, some, as part of Dr. Wallace, are acoustic numbers.
Here is the link to the first single release: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=735258841&s=143444
Sea Like a Carpet by Duncan Wallace
Sea like a carpet, crinkled up.
Oriental pattern, complicated, stormeee
Formless, flowing, free
Whatever you are, you are almost always in a clash
With smoother, deeper piles
Held to the floor with fancy tacks
You are wide and boundless
What’s visible to me
Is constantly fluctuating
Like your being waved in the air, beaten
Constantly at sea
You see, your flexible fibrous nature, is
At One with me
Peace in strife
You are wall to wall
Socks, no shoes, please
Tints the blue, you see.
Farewell Lou Reed – you will be sorely missed. Difficult to imagine a bigger or better combination of sheer talent and imagination….and humour
‘One chord is fine,’ he once said, alluding to his bare-bones guitar style. ‘Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.’
We always hope more is possible from our idols. We dream that they will go on forever. Perhaps somewhere, somehow, they do.
‘Kindness is knowing, knowing understanding and understanding all to the good’
Come back soon for some new poetry.
