enzo DJ ~ 3/’a

Tractors are to the physical world what synthesizers are to music. Help tiny men build huge structures. Tractors also do some really bad stuff, like destroy farmlands for McMansion subdivisions. Synthesizers can be used to create beautiful works like those of Brian Eno or Kraftwerk or for the abominations of Skrillex and Daft Punk.

Great shot by Mr. enzo DJ, love the perspective, the composition,  the apping.

We had some good machines.

This is the sound of poisons
The sickness no one knows
No one is crying for us this time
Our shapes are blurring
Under miracles of snow
Weave a circle ’round him three times
You have to plan your moves at these times
Our hearts are breaking
One more song to go

These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
These hands I kiss
Tragic as anything
These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
All splash and hiss
Beyond my measuring

Only the anacrucis*
The main event remains
Shameful and naked, out there
In the great cold outdoors
We have to learn these things again
Bathe in this incandescent glow
The leap to something I don’t know
There is no doubt upon us when
The greasy men come back again

These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
These hands I kiss
Tragic as anything
These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
All splash and hiss
Beyond my measuring

These faded flowers
Precious as memory
A veil of cloud
Correct as energy
We had some good machines
But they don’t work no more
I loved you once
Don’t love you anymore

These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
These hands I kiss
Tragic as anything
These eyes are blind
This is a pure thing
All splash and hiss
Beyond my measuring

These faded flowers
Precious as memory
A veil of cloud
Correct as energy
We had some good machines
But they don’t work no more
I loved you once
Don’t love you anymore

Faded Flowers by Shriekback

*In the song “Happy Birthday to You”, the anacrusis forms the Happy and the accent is on Birthday.
In The Star Spangled Banner, the word Oh in the first line is an anacrusis in both the music and the anapestic meter of the poem:
x    /    x    x    /  x    x    /    x    x    /    
Oh,    say,    can    you    see,    by the    dawn’s    ear-    ly    light. . .
˘    ˘    ¯    ˘    ˘    ¯    ˘    ˘    ¯    ˘      . . .
At the beginning of the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine”, “In the” is the anacrusis, while “town” falls on the downbeat.
