THIS GREAT PLAN

We took a pinch of terror and a handful of pleasure,
we threw in some early mornings and a long expansive view,
we knuckled in with moving muscle and the silent slip of a canoe,
then we held it all together with a small photograph of you,

this great plan! Get it!

And suddenly we were giants, bigger than houses, bigger than mountains,
bigger than you,
and suddenly we were giants, tearing up the sky, ripping up the bridges,
no why, no lie, no sigh, just high,
and suddenly we were giants, with eyes the size of frying pans and fingers as long as roads,
you know my fingers they are as long as your roads,

and the world became a wall, and we became a vapour,
and the world became a muddy shoe, and we became a pilgrim,
and the world became an oyster and we became a raging sea,
the world became the letters and we became just poetry,

This great plan! Get it!

And suddenly we were giants, ripping up the skies, tearing up the bridges,
no why, no lie, no sigh, just high,
and the sun baked us cakes and doughnuts like saturn´s rings
and sugared them with meteorites and filled them up with jam,
said, come troglodytes, you hiding mites, come out and feel the sun.
Come out and feel the sun!

This great plan! Get it!
You be jeff and I´ll be stan, you be hell and I´ll be bird,
you be the burning and I´ll be the wood,
Get it! Get it! Get it!

And suddenly we´re all just flamingoes, singing fado at some setting sun,
and suddenly we´re all just knock-kneed girls playing hop scotch, having fun,
And suddenly we´re all just presidents with a helluva lot to say,
then a paltry marsh where the trees don´t grow,
then ghosts, our hands held high in salute or goodbye,
against the cold window winter.....

and suddenly we are there, gasping,
pointing at ourselves from across the room,
and suddenly we are there, gasping,
pointing at ourselves from the moon

you be hydrogen, and i´ll be oxygen,
you be right and i´ll be just plain wrong,
you be the car and i´ll be the road,
you be the letters and i´ll be the words,
you be the pink and i´ll be the blue,
you be the here and i´ll be the now,
you be the burning and i´ll be the wood!

YOU BE THE BURNING
I´LL BE THE WOOD

This great plan! Get it!

about

Barnaby Tree Berlin, Germany

Performer, musician (cello, voice and piano), artist and writer.

I am driven to see what can be done with the bare bones, with just the body and acoustic sound; just the air between the performer and the audience. The physicality of song; the sweat and blood of the noise.

I am a cellist that sings and a pianist that dances.
