Borobudur walking ahead, you two the same firm youthful step speaking swiftly in a stranger's tongue beneath the blitz of black carved stone it radiated sun beneath the sleeping giant his hand swept over the serene, green expanse he said nine villages had gone including his own you know to be angry cause you love your home so well I falter, eavesdropping, and looking back for my family against a massive heap of lava but all I see is Java
Lone Jack Pine I am a lone jack pine tall and green with no visible roots growing from an old dark rock or the driftwood that bobs on the surface of the faceted waves thrown by a wind from the south on a crisp summer day I am a lone jack pine tall and green the water's too shallow for swimming knees scraping the sand and hands full of algae my hair catches on pebbles and the gravel below A local poet describes herself she says, I've lived here longer than anywhere else Is that the best I can hope for? I'm the driftwood the bobs on the surface of the faceted waves is it the best I can hope for? I'm a lone jack pine
Thoughts of being female from picnic table two on the wilderness trail I must remember to switch my bikini for a dry bra we'll have no disks of damp as I start off alone on the wilderness trail with salt on my lips that I must not lick away someone is watching I'm an angry cat, terrifying works every time what was it that her grandmother said? nothing so shameful as a woman walking and eating, or was it walking and smoking? a boy from Hong Kong told me you walk like a lumberjack but what use is elegance on the wilderness trail? so blindly safe, like the unlocked doors of the widow's house are creatures lurking in the shadows, monsters and abductors of girls? suspicious even now at picnic table two with its etching, let's do it on the table lipstick from the city like a biker chick hair bleached by the Muskoka sun ah, asking for trouble, no doubt asking for trouble on the wilderness trail
The Visit her hand glides gracefully, only a gesture shielding her eyes, the palm trees rustle as she sighs and tells her story he shakes his head, she's lost me now as I stab the young coconut with a cold steel spoon the goats that gaze on the graves are torn between life and death they're held fast with a short rope while she watches me from afar all the names are wrong but I've seen the bedposts carved by nails and hours of pain as she waves her hand goodbye

Blog post:

by Maciej Lewenstein from
theamateursguidetoavantgarde.bandcamp.com/releases: "at the very essence Jeannette singing is different, original and extremely absorbing. The trio starts with "Borobudur (live version)", which illustrates already perfectly the idea: strong bass and drums lines support very open vocal of Jeannette. "Lone Jack Pine (live version)" is very different: it combines faster and slower fragments, yet is more abstract, with unexpected fragmentation and variations of the sound. My favorite is "Thoughts On Being Female from Picnic Table Two (live version)", the most dramatic, but also lyrical track, with phenomenal bowed double bass lines."
