This is to Ivan Moravec’s recording of the complete Nocturnes. The thermometer broke ninety breaking debris from the muzzle of a chained dog pacing a bent and rusted chain link fence. Sharp points of bone stretch its skin as its eyes attempt to escape their orbits. The mouth is obscured by the machinery garment bound with leather and metal with a double leather strap belted over the animal’s glabella space speaking more words than the tongue could form or the skin could fold, supple and smooth but creased. The animal lets out a low descending groan. The knife in the hand can cut the muzzle or cut the heart. The eyes stretch out further almost free.
