Print Version

I am in a vast black sea, the spaces reach in front of me

As far as I could ever see, as far again behind.

And each new world I land upon, with seas and hills and storm and


Can never fill me when I'm gone or overwhelm my mind.

But I am haunted by a bamboo wind

The clatter of the bones of our misbegotten earth

The wail of a memory of how our fears

Destroyed the precious cradle of our birth.

Bamboo glades within my head are spectres of the lands we fled

With all our second chances dead we could not hope to stay

Bamboo dances in my night, hides the stars that watch my flight

It moans and rattles of the blight that made us run away.

But I am haunted by a bamboo wind

The clatter of the bones of our misbegotten earth

The wail of a memory of how our fears

Destroyed the precious cradle of our birth.

Bamboo forest, dead or lost, overlaps these points of frost

Knowing what these stars have cost I feel a bleak despair

Ancestors revile our name, curse the wombs from which we came

Dispossessed and drowned in shame, with no home anywhere.


And I am haunted by a bamboo wind

The clatter and the moaning of a world we see no more

The rustle of the ghost of leaves in dappled sun

The ruined song of every shattered shore.

Words and music:Kathy Mar

  • Barbie Cues
    "Somebody's barbie is a vaporous cloud
    One of the barbies of a very freaky crowd
    Someone's prize hibachi will never cook again
    It's impossible to charbroil on a small metallic stain..."
  • Basilisk
    "She searched for a Basilisk all through the seasons
    She hunted him down but for all the wrong reasons
    She'd thought up a plan that she felt was quite clever
    A way her great beauty could live on forever..."
  • Behold
    "As in the tribal ritual passed down from ancient days
    Take all your newborn children out beyond the city blaze
    And raise your children overhead to sable skies above
    The sable field of distant space, afire with every star..."
  • Between Grass Shores
    "Tides of mountains crash on the shores of grain
    And in this city of ash I tremble in my private pain
    Will the winds of time blow my heart to me
    Or will I wander forever between grass shores and mountain sea..."
  • Bhigg House
    "These are the steps that Ruth built
    Loving kindness in each nail
    Planks that never trip the feet
    Lead you from the shady street..."
  • Box
    "I am in a box.
    I am locked inside.
    Someone owns the locks.
    Nowhere left to hide...."
  • Boy Genius
    "Boy genius with the big sad eyes
    All of the mamas want to take you home
    Get what you can, do what you must, be what you have to be
    And take that weary highway out alone...."
  • Brownies
    "How come the kitchen's still a sight
    Where are the Brownies when you need them
    I hope they change their minds and come tonight
    Woke up this morning and the porch was full of sour milk..."
