Track Name: 09 Hugo & Treats - Fiat Lux


In the beginning was the simplest word

Sent spinning with verbs

Littered absurd

and heard 

Spilling with visions of orbiting worlds

MOONS

Asteroids

Comets all swerving
ZOOM
Perpetual eliptical curves 

WOMBS
Conical geometric collective concern

BOOM!



From word GO

The planetary curved road confirmed flow

(shock of intertia)

Mock chaotic dispersal

Gravity's friction emerges

Solar systems and curls grow

Fixed in a black curtain

One in a trillion planets throw random urges

Life's flag unfurling.



Bacteria spilling, amoebian split and the poisonous gas slurping

Bubbling in seas, oxygen popping on the void of a cracked surface

Life's born in the primordial furnace 
forms

A lightning storm immerses

Selective search,
Intelligent designed versions fly from divine perches



TRY:

Swimming with fins

Lay eggs

Photosynthesise at will

Amphibian

Porpoise

Tortoise

Fungus

Spineless virus

or snail


Grow lungs from gills

Filter fibres of krill

Prehensile tail

Opposable thumbs, five claws, eyeballs lined forward:
The hunter with a hunger to kill.

This is how it begins.

Wild call, crawl, walk, talk, light fire for warmth 
and the higher thoughts
cause expansion of heads 
therefore when the time arrives to be born

Infants can't stand on legs, demand to be fed

Crying from the night to the dawn

Garments on flesh

Grab femur bone, instinct to defend what's rightfully yours
Split head of my enemy

Leaving his body to rot

SCREAM

oesophagus dropping, jaw and tongue hopping forming the speech to express DREAMS

young we feed from the breast, 

Among the cunning and strong is a constant test

Adjust and thus we must gather together gather the berries and seeds born in the EARTH


Men get swarthier, become warriors

Females evolve curvier first

We hunt further as nature's worthiest herbs gracefully nurture and slake our thirst


Beckoning dead reckoning, head trickling, cerebral hemispheres disconnect listening, navigating in the mist again, hearing the breath of invisible inner strength whistling.
By fire one night as light drops,
 an elder sidles up, coughs, 
the tribe stops

Then he hands out handfuls of red toadstools covered in white spots
... we imbibe parts and eyes start to fly past sky's limits in circles:

Bringing visions of visions in murmurs
the vividest images stirring

This is how it begins.



Pupils wide and flailing jaws, the males all face the cave wall

sitting gazing at the shadows dance as the flames fall, 
Inspired, grab black rock from the fire
 SCRAWL

taking all the tales and stories from the day before and making drawings:

Bison in full flight and falling 
and frightened but excited men with spears 

A gigantic mammoth being panicked and herded towards the cliff edge in fear

and as the toadstool goes through the images so true seem to be alive and clear

The firelight animating the numbest of lines and playing shows in the zone behind the huntsman's eyes

seeing them suddenly writhe is such a surprise for his primitive mind the feeling divine



The first picture

The first line

The first word

The first art

The firsthand wisdom

passed on through a bursting heart or written in words planted in verse cast scripture


The same spark that inspired life to make a start like an elixir

was flicked in the kindling enabling the flame's charge to bring light to the cave's dark

playing the part of the Trickster


And it's the same spark that made our ancestors paint large murals


The Same Spark when you decide to ride with the divinely designed mind and make art that's beautiful


from your first finger painting to the eulogy at your funeral,

We're all on the same path immutable

and a bountiful, fruitful part of our brain can't forget the flames dance in deity's creativity crucible.
