This song was composed by Christopher Ludwig, and performed by Baritone Cliff Ridley and pianist Tatiana Khvatova.



wasn't sure any
of this could
survive outside
the darkroom

able to breath
the dead air
only so long
he came out

the half remembered
descent through
the pines

to where he had
set camp
still with him

the vantage
the Haida girl
had taken him to

where the dim
outline of the sea,
shone, smoke

from a shore
fire weaving trees
into distance.
