about

These are songs from this past summer. I wanted to call this "Stories From The Equator" but it is my great sadness that not all my stories are from the equator.

I found common ground in calling this project Borderlands when I incorporated the first 3 songs which were inspired by our trip to Guyana (where we traveled with Alyssa Bistonath to record location sound for her upcoming doc about the country and its relationship with its diaspora) with 3 more songs: a song about being inside when you want to be outside; another about inexplicable visions before death; and another about disconnected relatives who can only find a reason to love one another in the deepness and plainness of sharing genetic material.

So these are the borders, all there all at once, fully defined, floating to the top in importance and sinking again; life/death, inside/outside, childhood/adulthood, north america/south america, land/sea

Track Name: Alright To Seek Shelter
There is now a bridge across the Demarara river, my love
And it's alright to seek shelter
always oblige the young boys who try

Walk now gently on the earth
just like in my memory, a forest in birth
a flimsy latch holding the door against the wind
and not your neighbour

It's nothing to ask for a few peppers and veggies from the vine
running around catching iguanas
crabs in a basket and coconut oil
and so
Track Name: Water Tower
Don't let them in let the sun set
on your worst work
let it go
They'll never tell where your son went
why he ended
up at dawn

in the shining light
of the water tower
of the water tower
Track Name: Part Of Me
Part of me
Part of you
When you grow old
I grow old too
Time moves forward
We fly onward
The tide always comes back
The moon doesn't know that
Part of me
Part of you
When you grow old
I grow old too
Track Name: O Guyana
And I remember O Guyana
I wrote your name on the banks of the seawall at low tide
your picture is on my wall

I swear I have not forgotten
I live with a hole the shape of you
My lotus blossom, my forest mango tree

O Guyana

The distant sight of you
my favorite golden hue
the night wind combs your hair
a long life we have not shared
