Flowmatic Blood Moon Flowmatic Blood Moon

    • Arts

Flowmatic Blood Moon er Poetisk Podcasts første tosprogede produktion, og på mange måder frugten af en fælles indsats. Shadi Bazeghis digte forholder sig til traumer, spændinger og virkningerne af krig. De er storskalerede refleksioner over vores planets aktuelle tilstand, rodfæstet i en hverdagslig poetisk intimitet. Mansoor Hosseini, der som Shadi oprindelig er flygtning fra Iran, har skabt en musik som både er moderne og nostalgisk; lydlige landskaber der åbner et dramatisk rum for ordene, og forstærker deres intensitet.

Flowmatic Blood Moon is Poetisk Podcast’s first bilingual production and in many ways a collaborative effort. Shadi Bazeghi’s poems tackle trauma, tension, and the effects of war. Big-picture reflections on the current state of our planet rooted in a poetic intimacy of the everyday. Mansoor Hosseini, like Shadi originally a refugee from Iran, has created music that is both modern and nostalgic, creating landscapes that open a space for the words and amplify their intensity.

– [01] all hail the american night


i said: all hail the american night



— [05] you have a way of repeating things when you program



— [01] probably   but i have expanded the code


         PROGRAM ID . hello-world-as-deep-as-a-paper-plate





¬ ¬ ¬





[05] so i hand you water

and beer in a wineglass

with ruby-red lipstick on the rim




— what are we without     a little elegance
when the masks crack and we
recognize each other
by our glitches





¬ ¬ ¬






i am so tired   i say   and you’re the only one who knows   
it’s a vast understatement     that i am cold
as hell    that time is a continuation
of the economy’s repeating pattern
absolute power circles;




the US military that buys 269,000 barrels of oil every day




war capital that pays for our excess consumption
draining the planet





populations unable to see the forest for the consumables
who turn to warlords for words of comfort










and here         
in my head?   



¬ ¬ ¬




in my PTSD brain   




DISPLAY

the dissonance and gravity of the syndromes     memory flashes

and a heavy oblivion corroding the spirit



there is nothing besides a poetry
à la wilderness




¬ ¬ ¬




[10]
it reeks of smoke and pent-up night here
the dreams grow from your hair



i awake under the bed
with shared pain and blood in my face



you say it is the blood
moon of the century





¬ ¬ ¬




DISPLAY   september nights   the divergence of melancholies

            in flowmatic september nights   where longing


            for the sun and purple


                  dandelions   unfold


            on stems of pain




¬ ¬ ¬




DISPLAY   september nights    hoarse flowmatic september nights



an interstellar object moves into Pegasus
at 44 km per second    hey



hold on     we are here     we are not here
EXIT PERFORM you know     DISPLAY





¬ ¬ ¬





            september nights    7-digit september nights

            in what language does rain fall

            over unrecognizable bodies





            Common Business Oriented Language?





¬ ¬ ¬





Venus moves into Scorpio and your passion


your ethnic passion reeks!





there are 117 earth days between each sunrise





¬ ¬ ¬





– berätta något för mig


– harfi be man bezan



– berätta något för mig som inte redan finns
