it is working as intended

performance poem

it is working as intended was written to be performed at the ninetales event elegant horse, imagine that at the end of 2019. the recording on this page is a 'studio' version created after the fact to capture the piece in as faithful as possible a form to the original performance.

the piece required of the audience to join in with the passages in red, reading from a handout deliberately styled in the same vein as church services. this is reflected in the recorded version with a chorus of my own voice, with deliberately sloppy and flat delivery.

the content of the poem is to do with feelings of connectedness when separated by a vast distance, going on a solo trip in order to find oneself, and realising that the only place you want to be is right back where you came from.
