Toward their destination before they drown

Rainy Night Music

Wonderful and haunting soundtrack of the movie "Before the Rain". Spend the 45 minutes required to listed to all of it, and then go find the movie and watch it.

Here are two pieces that I wrote to this music (from the archives circa 2004-05):

[A Mouthful of You]

City streets on the window, Are reflections of this day: Passing people, cabs and buses, Memories of urgent lovemaking Dissolving into shades of gray.

Ominous flash of sheet lighting, Twitching branches of birds and trees, Dull honking of vehicles and desire. The world, Darling, falls away when my mouth Fills up with pieces of you just as windows Are obliterated by the splashing rain.

[Right Now]

We are on the tricky slope Of talk, as you urge me to Say what I am feeling right Now.

Right now, my darling, We are making love, right

Now, we are feeding our hunger For certainty against dust, right

Now, my hands are pouring Camphor into your hair, right

Now, our bodies are conversing in A language they both know, right

Now, your right eyelash is fluttering against My right shoulder like a raven’s wing, right

Now, this black cab is driving Into London’s thin rain, right

Now eternity is flashing by me, and is Falling on your cheeks as tears, right Now.
