ordinary smoke (2:47)

Music by Glenn Buhr; Lyrics by Margaret Sweatman

   Margaret Sweatman, vocal
   Glenn Buhr, piano
   Gilles Fournier, bass


She stared at her fingers
And conjured a song
So ardent and delicate
She wrote her fingers into song
She built the tower out of bone
And ordinary smoke
And a keen focus on silence.

She lived at the end of an endless line
Without sound, without air,
Lucid as children
And clear
Nothing is far away
And nothing is near
In the keen focus of silence.
