I keep going back to Javolenus’ work. So intimate and
open enough to add words or instruments… Thanks again, Javo.
The words (they even rhyme - rare for me!) are below.

Venus and the Moon

Marino Rocks

Midwinter night we share a glass of wine
Atop these seaside cliffs
Gazing out beyond the sea’s black hole.
Dark cloud clears. The new moon’s shine
A sharpened pair of horns. Perhaps a bowl.
Beside it Venus in orbit shifts,

Rising as the moon begins to set
Each reflected off the sea.
Pixellated lines of double white reach out
Like a school of silver fish darts from the net.
Twin searchlights flaring, feeling for the beach,
Mesmerize, head straight for you and me.
