Passage | Intensely raw and deeply personal, but striving for the spiritual and universal, Passage is a tough-love poem to resilience, and getting through the impossibly lonely night. At first, there are only voices, really one voice (female) playing both parts in her head of a painful breakup. Jagged, jarring, whirling images reflect the harrowed, obsessing mind and desperate state of the abandoned lover. In time, the journey crawls on, baby-steps back to life: a literally burning bed of rage settles, as the bed crumbles in ashes, into a soothing fire, a person drowning in sadness transforms into a woman standing in holy waters. Darkness/fragmentation evolves into a fragile wholeness/holiness. A lover lost forever; the stars and earth rediscovered, regained.
