(2015) For Trumpet, Soprano, Piano - 8'-10'



My Machine is an open wound;

In some distant future they'll listen

and feel and see and know

what we were


In some distant past

they'll flock under our


to twist a delight or two


On some hill, far from us now,

they'll dig us up and still

we'll sing true


In some moment

we can say;

now is not our time.
