Where do unaccomplished desires go?
Always thinking of unaccomplished desires.
Crescendo, crawling, distraction.
Destruction, anger, frustration.
Falling and losing control.
Losing your mind.
Intense desire can destroy a person.

Eerie, a slow rumble
A build up telling the tale of a journey
Tapping a bell

John Brennan - LIVE 2017

Soft rumbling, dancing in gold and sleek shoes.
Faster and faster.
Desire has many sounds, many iterations
This time it’s live and personal.

appropriating stars, trip advisor reviews
resort to space,
strange leisure
the spinning wheel of a routine reflection

abstract, a disconnected hospitality
the shadow of a tropical bouquet among chaotic screeching
